How can we check the validity of an SSL Certificate used for CWP?

Because we are managing a large number of SSL Certificates all with different validity periods, we started doing external SSL Certificate Validation checking.  
The only SSL Certificates I have been unable to validate are the ones used in the HiveManager for CWP.
I realise that if I was physically onsite with a WiFi Device, I would be able to access the SSL Certificate to check its validity, but does anyone know of another way to check the currently active CWP SSL Certificate remotely?

Hi Tony,

Do you have access to the HM remotely? You could check the validity of the certificate by going to "certificate management";

You can then export and open the cert to view its details;

Is this the information that you are looking for?

Kind Regards,

I think he is looking for a way of checking this via an automated monitoring system rather than requiring a manual process.

Thanks Nick. Yes, I am trying to get the certificate status via our Check_MK monitoring. This is easy when there is a website to test against, but more difficult for an Aerohive CWP
