Replacing Security Certificates

Veeam Backup for AWS uses a TLS certificate to establish secure communication between the web browser on the local machine and the backup server.

During installation, Veeam Backup for AWS automatically generates a default self-signed certificate. You can replace this default certificate with your own self-signed certificate or with a certificate that was obtained from a Certificate Authority (CA).

To replace a TLS certificate:

  1. At the top right corner of the Veeam Backup for AWS window, click Configuration.
  2. In the configuration menu on the left, click Settings.
  3. On the Certificates tab, click Replace Web Certificate.

Veeam Backup for AWS will launch the New Certificate wizard.

  1. At the Certificate Source step of the wizard, select one of the following options:
  • Select Recreate a self-sign certificate to replace the existing certificate with a new self-signed certificate automatically generated by Veeam Backup for AWS.
  • Select Upload certificate(s) to upload a certificate that you obtained from a CA or generated using a 3rd party tool.
  1. If you have selected to upload certificates, at the Upload certificate(s) step of the wizard, do the following:
  1. Click Browse and browse to the certificate that you want to install.
  2. If the certificate file is protected with a password, specify the password in the Password field.

To view the entered password, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the field.

  1. Review certificate details and click Finish.
