TLS certificates ensure secure connection with Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager over HTTPS. During the Enterprise Manager installation, you can select an existing certificate or generate a new self-signed certificate. The certificate is bound to Enterprise Manager, the REST API and their ports.
Initially, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager uses the same TLS certificate for all connections. If you want to use different certificates, you can update your current certificate. For more information, see Updating TLS Certificates.
TLS certificates are used for the following purposes:
- Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager Service and Veeam Guest Catalog Service communicate with backup servers added to the Enterprise Manager infrastructure.
For more information, see Connecting to Backup Servers.
- Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager web app and Veeam vSphere Client plug-in communicate with a browser.
- Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager REST API service communicates with a REST API client.
