Need certificate to achieve SSL connexion


I’m new to SSL and I need some file to upload on my hardware to connect to my HiveMQ cluster.

I need to have those 3 files : cacert.pem, client.pem, user_key.pem.

How can I get them in order to upload them and achieving in connecting to my cluster ?

I’m on windows.

Thank you for your time !

Hey @F_Gaudon ,
Nice to see more people getting interested with MQTT and HiveMQ, welcome to our community :slight_smile:

  • HiveMQ Cloud cluster doesn’t need client.pem and user_key.pem. HiveMQ Cloud cluster authenticates the client by username and password (so called “simple auth”). In order to “trust” the server, you device might need a root CA cert. You can download the root certificate here. This will create a file called isrgrootx1.pem, which you can use as “Server Certiciate” (cacert.pem)
  • Your device should also support TLS-extension called SNI: Server name indication.

I hope this helps,
Dasha from HiveMQ team
