Manage Multiple Certificates

The multiple certificate feature allows you to use Web Based Management to manage each certificate installed on your machine. In Web Based Management, navigate to the Certificate or CA Certificate screen to view certificate content, delete, or export your certificates.

Maximum Number of Certificates Stored UP on Brother Machine

Self-signed Certificate or Certificate Issued by a CA


CA Certificate


We recommend storing one less certificate than allowed, reserving an empty spot in case of certificate expiration. When a certificate expires, import a new certificate into the reserved spot, and then delete the expired certificate. This ensures that you avoid configuration failure.

  • When you use HTTPS/IPPS, IEEE 802.1x, or Signed PDF, you must select which certificate you are using.
  • When you use SSL for SMTP/POP3/IMAP4 communications (only available for certain models), you do not have to choose the certificate. The necessary certificate will be chosen automatically.
