This document (000019721) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server SLES 15 SP2
​​​​​SUSE Linux Enterprise Server SLES 15 SP1
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server SLES 15
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server SLES 11 SP4

Situation

After upgrade to SLES 15, the YaST Certificate Management Module is no longer available.

Resolution

You need to use openssl via command line directly or use a different software to manage CA certificates.
XCA is a opensource tool for certificate management. Currently there is no package available even via Package Hub.

It is only available in SUSE's Open Build Service at this link.
https://software.opensuse.org/package/xca

Install with (example for SLES 15 SP1) :
zypper addrepo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/security/SLE_15_SP1/security.repo
zypper refresh
zypper install xca


It is possible to import the CA, certificates and keys in XCA.
The path to find the YaST default CA, certificates and keys on the system are :

Type
Path
CA certificate
/var/lib/CAM/YaST_Default_CA/cacert.pem
CA key
/var/lib/CAM/YaST_Default_CA/cacert.key
certificate(s)
/var/lib/CAM/YaST_Default_CA/certs/*.pem
certificate key(s)
           /var/lib/CAM/YaST_Default_CA/keys/*.key
  

Cause

The YaST Certificate Management Module is discontinued and has been removed.
