SSL certificates for PingFederate 
The automation scripts let you install the PingFederate admin SSL certificate as the PingFederate runtime SSL certificate.
A new property, activate_global_pingFed_admin_certificate_as_runtime, is introduced to manage this behavior.
The default value of this property is set to true, which activates the PingFederate admin SSL certificate as the PingFederate runtime SSL certificate.
If you set the value of this property to false, the scripts create a new runtime SSL certificate. This new runtime SSL certificate is created using the properties that are defined to run when activate_global_pingFed_admin_certificate_as_runtime=false.
The following table describes the properties you must specify to configure SSL certificates for PingFederate and an example for each property. For more information, see “Manage SSL server certificates” in the PingFederate documentation.
