Convert the GlobalSign Root R1 Certificate to PEM Format

After you download the GlobalSign Root R1 certificate, convert it to PEM format to authenticate the EDL Hosting Service.
You must convert the GlobalSign Root R1 certificate to
PEM
format to create a certificate profile for authenticating the EDL Hosting Service. Creating the certificate profile to authenticate the EDL Hosting Service is a best practice when leveraging the EDL Hosting Service when you configure the firewall to access an external dynamic list from the EDL Hosting Service.
