Step 12. Change Default Certificate
Veeam ONE uses TLS to ensure secure data communication between Veeam ONE Web Client and a web browser. That is, the Veeam ONE Web Client is available over HTTPS.
During upgrade, Veeam ONE generates a self-signed certificate that is used to secure traffic. You can replace this default certificate with your own self-signed certificate or a certificate that was obtained from a Certificate Authority. This step is optional, and is not required if you want to keep the default certificate generated during the upgrade procedure.
If you replace the default certificate with another self-signed certificate, you must configure a trusted connection between the Veeam ONE Web Client and a web browser later. For details, see Configuring Trusted Connection.

- In the Actions > Edit Site pane on the right, click Bindings.
