Set new ESET PROTECT Server certificate

Your ESET PROTECT Server certificate is created during installation and distributed to ESET Management Agents and other components to allow communication to the ESET PROTECT Server.

If necessary, you can configure ESET PROTECT Server to use a different peer certificate. You can use ESET PROTECT Server certificate (generated automatically during installation) or a Custom certificate.

The ESET PROTECT Server certificate is required for a secure TLS connection and authentication. The Server certificate is used to ensure that ESET Management Agents and ESET PROTECT On-Prem Proxies do not connect to an illegitimate server.

1.Click More > Settings > expand section Connection, select Change certificate.


2.Choose from the two Peer certificate types:

ESET Management certificate - click Open certificate list and select the certificate to use.

Custom certificate - browse to your custom certificate and then click OK and Save. If you are performing a migration, select the ESET PROTECT Server certificate .pfx file you exported from your old ESET PROTECT Server.


3.Restart the ESET PROTECT Server service, see our Knowledgebase article.
