PER request to replace the self-signed SSL cert on the EPO "Agent Handler" with a valid SSL cert

Jump to solution

Hi Mcafee supports,

I was told by the support team to request a PER to replace the self-signed SSL certificate on the EPO "Agent Handler" with a valid SSL certificate signed by a valid CA. Currently there is no option to import a valid SSL certificate to the Agent Handler. 

We did a security audit on our external facing servers and the Agent Handler is on the list of High Risk. Here is the finding description and remediation from the report:

Finding Description:

Self-Signed SSL Certificates
Self-signed SSL certificates do not provide server authentication. Conversely, such certificates train the users to accept invalid certificates which would make them used to accepting rogue certificates. The use of self-signed or expired certificated puts the entire communication channel into jeopardy.

Remediation:

Use valid SSL certificates signed by a valid CA such as VeriSign or use a trusted internal certificate authority.
