  • thumbprint — a thumbprint of a TLS certificate installed on the worker instance.

You can save the copied information to a file and use it to open the Veeam Backup browser from another machine. Note that the machine from which you plan to open the Veeam Backup browser must have internet access to the worker instance where the Veeam Backup browser runs. For details, see Before You Begin.

To avoid the man-in-the-middle attack, before you restore files and folders, check that the certificate thumbprint displayed in the web browser from which you access the Veeam Backup browser matches the certificate thumbprint in the saved file.
