SSL Certificate



I'm trying to secure my home network as best I can. That means establishing a proper PKI infrastructure, all be it using fairly limited technologies such as an off-line RaspberryPi to be my certificate authority.  I'm now going through each of my devices and installing a certificate issued by my CA.  I've come to the HomeCenter Lite and I'm struggling, I can't see anywhere to install a custom SSL certificate!  The only option appears to be to download a trusted root certificate, but given I've no idea who has the private key for such a certificate I won't install it.  The whole fundamental purpose of PKI is that the root CA private key is very well protected. The private key of this root CA could be anywhere, I don't even know if it is unique to my device - and even if it is, then my device if it is ever compromised could then be used to generate trusted certificates.


Where can I find the option to install my own custom certificate signed by my own secure, offline, CA?  Is this an option?  If not then it is a terribly insecure architecture that that totally ignores basic security fundamentals of PKI.  But if i've missed something I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

You can't install your own certificate on hubs, you can use certificate what is prepared by us
