You might need to use your own custom certificate, capable of strict validation, for communication between the Carbon Black EDR server and all sensors. If you do not need different certificates for different sensor groups, Carbon Black EDR provides a single-click method to assign one new certificate to all sensor groups.

Note: Before assigning to all sensor groups, the recommended best practice is to validate certificate connectivity on at least one active sensor group first.


  1. Click Username > Settings.
  2. Click Server Certificates.
