Peer Certificates

If a Certification Authority is present on you system, you should create a peer certificate for individual ESET Remote Administrator components. Each component (ERA Agent, ERA Proxy and ERA Server) requires a specific certificate.

icon_plus New...

This option is used to create a new certificate. These certificates are used by the ERA Agent, ERA Proxy and ERA Server.

icon_plus APN/DEP Certificate

This option is used to create a new APN/DEP certificate. This certificate is used by the MDM. This action requires a valid license.

icon_cert_usage Certificate usage

You can also check which clients are using this ERA certificate.

icon_edit Edit...

Select this option to edit an existing certificate from the list. The same options apply as when you create a new certificate.

icon_export Export...

This option is used to export a certificate as a file. This file is necessary if you install the ERA Agent locally on a computer or when installing MDM.

icon_export Export as Base64...

This option is used to export a certificate as a .txt file.

icon_undo_default Revoke...

If you no longer want to use a certificate, select Revoke. This option invalidates the certificate. Invalid certificates will not be accepted by ESET Remote Administrator.

The revoke action is irreversible, you will not be able to use a certificate that has been revoked. Make sure there are no ERA Agents left using this certificate before you revoke it. This will prevent loss of connection to client computers or servers (ERA Server, ERA Proxy, Mobile Device Connector, Virtual Agent Host).

move_default Access Group

A certificate or a authority can be moved to other group. Then it becomes available to users who have sufficient rights for this group. To easily find a certificate's home group select the certificate and click move_default Access Group in the drop down menu. The home group of the certificate is displayed in the first line of the pop up menu (for example, /All/San Diego.  See our sample scenario to learn more about sharing certificates).

validation-status-icon-warning IMPORTANT

You will see only those certificates located in your home group (assuming you have read permission for certificates). Certificates which are created during the ERA installation are located in the All group and only administrators have access to them.


Show Revoked - shows you all revoked certificates.

Agent certificate for server assisted installation - This certificate is generated during server installation if you select the Generate certificates option.

Access Group Filter


The Access Group filter button enables users to select a static group and filter viewed objects according to the group where they are contained.
