Security Certificates

Security Certificates

For details about the eSight security certificate list, see the eSight Certificate List released with the version.

Certificate Category

eSight classifies certificates into the following categories by usage scope:

  • Communication bus certificate: certificates used by the JMS, JMX, and ROA buses for SSL communication.
  • Nginx certificate: certificates used by eSight clients to communicate with eSight over HTTPS.
  • Other service certificate: certificates used by other services for SSL communication. eSight provides a temporary certificate. You are advised to replace the temporary certificate with a certificate applied from the Certificate Authority (CA).

Deploying a Security Certificate

  • After eSight is upgraded, you need to import the certificate again. Otherwise, eSight will be unavailable.
  • After eSight is installed for the first time, you can use your own certificate (CA or self-signed certificate) to replace the temporary certificate.

You are advised to apply for a certificate from a CA. Otherwise, a certificate error or security risk notification may be displayed when you try to log in to eSight using a browser.

eSight supports self-signed and CA certificates. The following table describes their differences.




How to Obtain

Self-signed certificate

Temporary security certificate generated during eSight installation, which is used to ensure that eSight can run properly.

eSight uses the SHA256withRSA encryption algorithm.

If customers do not have CA certificates, they can use self-signed certificates.

  • The certificate is automatically generated during eSight installation.
  • This certificate can be generated by running the certificate tool.

CA certificate

Security certificate issued by a CA.

If customers have their own CA certificates, import the CA certificates.


If the certificate is not in .pfx format, you need to convert the certificate format to .pfx and then import the certificate.

This certificate is applied from a CA.


After a CA certificate is imported, a self-signed certificate will be generated if you perform the operation of generating a self-signed certificate.

  • You need to replace the certificate before it expires. If a certificate expires, eSight will be unavailable.
