Description of the video:
>> This video will help you install a digital certificate on an iOS device, such as an iPhone or an iPad, so you can digitally sign emails sent from your IU email account. To get started, we'll go to the Knowledge Base at kb.iu.edu and search for digital signature.
We'll click on the link for using digital signatures for email on iOS devices. The page that loads contains the instruction you'll want to follow when installing your digital certificate file on your iOS device. In the instructions on the KB, you'll want to highlight the two links in step one, under the heading, Installing on iOS, then copy and paste them into an email that you'll then send to yourself.
These links will help you install the additional certificates needed to use your digital certificate. You'll also want to attach the digital certificate you've previously created to that email.
Here is an example email with the links from the Knowledge Base, as well as a digital certificate ready to send to ourselves.
Once you've received the email with the links copied from the Knowledge Base and the digital certificate, you can go ahead and tap the first link to install the first certificate. iOS will ask to open Settings. You'll want to tap Allow to continue. Your device will switch to the Settings app, and show an Install Profile dialogue box.
Once you've entered your pin, you can tap install on the dialogue box that appears, and it will install the first certificate we need for our digital signature to work properly. Next, we'll go back to the Mail app and tap the second link to install the second certificate. The process for installing the second certificate will be the same as the first one.
Once the second certificate is installed, you can go back to the Settings app, and check out each certificate you installed. They should both say verified.
Now you can go back to your email, and install your digital certificate. Tap on the Attach Certificate file to start the installation process. You'll be brought back to the Settings app and another dialog box will appear. You'll want to tap Install at the top right corner of this dialog box.
You'll be prompted to enter your pin again. You'll see a warning saying, this profile is not signed. That's okay. Tap on Install in the upper right corner of the dialog box to continue installing the certificate. And then tap Install again in the next dialog box that pops up.
At this point, it will ask for a password for the certificate. This is typically the pin you chose when setting up your certificate. Go ahead and type in the pin and tap Next when you're ready.
Once the installation is finished, you'll see the Profile Installed dialog box. It will still say your certificate isn't signed, but that's okay. Tap Done to move on, and set up your email to use your digital signature. You'll want to switch back to the Settings app, to get your signature set up.
If you're in iOS 11, you'll want to go to Accounts & Passwords, in the Settings app. For older versions of iOS, you'll go to the Mail settings. iOS 11 is used in this video. When you're in Accounts and Passwords, tap on Exchange in the list of accounts and then select your account.
A dialog box will pop up. Tap on Advanced Setting to open up the menu where you can set your digital signature. Once in the Advanced Settings, in the S/MME section, make sure the S/MME switch is set to On and that Sign is set to Yes. At this point, when you send an email using your iOS device, it will be signed with your digital certificate.
