Console Certificates

Jump to solution

I've got epo 4.5 installed and i'm looking around in the settings and under Server Settings i found Console Certificates and client authentication was disabled. Can anyone tell me what this feature is used for? It sounds like to me that if enabled will force mcafee agents to use certificates to authenticate back to the epo server?

Can someone provide some examples on what to put into the fields? I'm not sure the format and what needs to go into them. Here are the fields

Trust Store Certificates

OCSP Responder URL (I think i got this)

Local path to directory of CRL files. I'm assuming i can put in the URL of the CRL file?

I've tried to searching for documentation but was not able to find any.

What extensions have you got checked in? I don't recognise what you're describing, and there's no Console Certificates page in a default 4.5 install which makes me think it might be an extra provided by a point product...

With regard to this:

This is not correct - the agents will use SSL to communicate if this option is enabled in the Ports configuration page, so there's a good chance they're already doing what you want, and this console certificates page may not be something you need to configure at all
