iPad SSL Cert Install

Our new Sophos XG firewall requires our clients to install its private SSL certificate. All of our students as well as any quests that are using the network will need to install this certificate in order to access any search engine or other SSL site. The process is simple and detailed below. Please read through the steps first so you know what to expect during the install.


  1. Click on the SSL Cert: Sophos SSL This will start the install process on the device. Click Install on the device.
    install start
  2. If the device is password protected, it will ask for the password. Enter your password.

  3. Since this is a private certificate, it will warn the user that this certificate can't be verified. Click Install again.

    install install
  5. Once installed, you can click Done.
