The install procedure above initially configures eagle-i with a self-signed certificate; this is acceptable for an 

titleevaluation/development node
 environment, but not for a 
titleproduction node
 instance. In order to finalize the installation of a production instance, please follow the steps below.




Transfer certificate, certificate chain and private key to the EC2 instance


These files are security-sensitive. Please make sure they are transferred to you in a secure manner (e.g. a memory stick, or using the scp command) and delete them from your personal machine once they are installed. If in doubt, please ask for assistance of your IT department.


  1. Using a terminal
    1. SSH to your EC2 instance and create a directory for the files to reside in, /opt/eaglei/install.


      Code Block
      skc-macbook:~ sophia$ ssh -i "aws-eaglei-ami.pem"
      Last login: Wed Aug 10 13:19:32 2016 from
      [root@ip-172-31-54-208 ~]# mkdir /opt/eaglei/install
    2. In another terminal window, go to the directory containing the certificate files

      • cd /my-home/aws/cert
    3. Do a SCP of the files to the newly created install folder on your EC2 instance (substitute your own file names and public hostname)



      Code Block
      cd /my-home/aws/cert
      scp -i "aws-eaglei-ami.pem" key.pem cert.crt ca.crt
  2. Using PuTTY/PSCP
    1. Follow the instructions in the section Transferring files with PSCP at the end of the AWS/PuTTY guide


2. Install certificate on EC2 instance

In the SSH terminal,

  1. Go to the install directory created above
    • cd /opt/eaglei/install
  2. Install the certificates
    • sh /bin/ -b ca.crt -c cert.crt -k key.pem
  3. At the prompt, enter the key's password. Tomcat will restart when the script is finished.



Verify certificate has been installed correctly

Using an online SSL validation service, such as, enter your public hostname to verify that the certificate has been installed correctly




Secure cleanup

Be sure to remove the security sensitive files used for installation
