Re: How to remove security certificate error.

Install a new certificate

The ESM ships with a default self-signed security certificate for esm.mcafee.local. Most web browsers display a warning that the certificate's authenticity can't be verified. Once you obtain the SSL key certificate pair that you want to use for your ESM, you must install it.


For option definitions, click ? in the interface.

1 On the system navigation tree, select System Properties, then click ESM Management.

2 On the Key Management tab, click Certificate.

3 Make the selections, then click Close.
