We operate our own internal PKI environment with our own CA which issues/signs both client and server certificates across our estate.

How can I import a server certificate with private key and CA root cert into the OPC UA Simulation server? It appears to try and use the default self signed CA and server cert and regenerates these on restart if I delete them?

To clarify, I am looking to use my own SERVER cert. I will also issue client certs from our CA and configure the OPC Simulation server to trust our CA as well but I need to get the application running with our own server cert first.

Simulation Server lacks more refined support for such a use case, but you can try to create your own private key and certificate and replace the existing ones. Use the exact same names as the default ones and use the password “privatepasswordopcua” for the private key. Certificate should be .der format and private key .pem.
