Peer Certificates

If a Certification Authority is present on you system, you should create a peer certificate for individual ESET Security Management Center components. Each component (ESET Management Agent and ESMC Server) requires a specific certificate.

add_new_default New

This option is used to create a new certificate. These certificates are used by the ESET Management Agent  and ESMC Server.

add_new_default 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 ESMC certificate.

edit_default Edit

Select this option to edit a description of an existing certificate from the list.

icon_export Export

This option is used to export a certificate as a file. This file is necessary if you install the ESET Management 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 permanently, the certificate is effectively blacklisted. This information is sent to ESET Management Agents during the next connection. Revoked certificates will not be accepted by ESET Security Management Center.

validation-status-icon-warning IMPORTANT

Make sure there are no ESET Management Agents (or other components) left using the certificate before you revoke it. Once the certificate is revoked, components will not be able to connect to ESMC Server. Reinstall components using a valid certificate to restore functionality.

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 ESMC 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 allows users to select a static group and filter viewed objects according to the group where they are contained.
