Replace a Self-Signed Cert with Custom Cert

If you accepted the self-signed certificate for SSL/TLS communication when installing the Sysdig components (see Define Basic Settings & License Info ), you can exchange for a custom certificate as follows:

  • Log in to the Replicated Management Console and select the Gear icon > Console Settings.

  • Click Upload certificate and it will automatically replace the original self-signed certificate.

Optional: Custom Self-Signed Certificate

Sysdig Monitor/Cloud/etc uses a self-signed SSL/TLS security certificate, unless a custom certificate is provided.

The example command below creates a custom, unsigned certificate called MyCert.pem; the certificate has a private key called MyCert.key, and is valid for five years:

sudo openssl req -new -x509 -sha256 -days 1825 -nodes -out ./MyCert.pem -keyout ./MyCert.key
