        I recently deployed Cisco Umbrella on my Cisco Router. Cisco had me install a root certificate on my Macs in case the Macs encounter the “blocked” page when accessing a site blocked by Cisco Umbrella.

        The instructions are here:

        https://docs.umbrella.com/deployment-umbrella/docs/install-cisco-umbrella-root-certificate

        I’ve never installed a root certificate on iOS/iPadOS, but since I am also browsing the web on iOS/iPadOS devices, I may need to install the root certificate on them as well.

        Has anyone installed a root certificate on iOS/iPadOS?

        Thanks!

        I would use the command in Terminal as this installs the certificate in the Mac root store. After that any app will automatically trust certificates linked to it.

        cheers, Paul

        Example : How to deploy Securely SSL certificate to iOS?

        You should have web access using Safari to your certificate file.

        That link worked. I was able to install the certificate on each of my iOS devices through Safari.

        I successfully already installed them at the root level on my Mac, but iOS/iPadOS doesn’t provide me Terminal access. 🙂

        Does that allow command line access to iOS itself though? My guess is it wouldn’t since iOS is pretty locked down.

          I think it does.

          “Terminal is a sandboxed command line environment for iOS that has over 30 commands currently available, covering many of the most used command line tools and commands you know and love, like cat, grep, curl, gzip and tar, ln, ls, cd, cp, mv, rm, wc, and more, all available right on your iPhone or iPad.”
