Types of TLS Certificates

In this article

    Veeam Backup & Replication can work with the following types of TLS certificates:

    • TLS certificate verified by a Certificate Authority (CA). If the SP already has a TLS certificate verified by a CA, the SP can import this TLS certificate and use it to establish a secure connection between Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure components.
    • Self-signed certificates. If the SP does not have a TLS certificate verified by a CA, the SP can generate a self-signed TLS certificate with Veeam Backup & Replication. For TLS certificate generation, Veeam Backup & Replication employs the RSA Full cryptographic service provider by Microsoft Windows installed on the Veeam backup server.

    The SP can also generate a self-signed certificate with any third-party solution and import it to Veeam Backup & Replication.
