vRealize Log Insight comes with a default self-signed certificate that is generated and signed at installation time. After you start vRealize Log Insight in the ROBO, install a CA-signed certificate to secure the communication of vRealize Log Insight. 

About this task

vRealize Log Insight uses a certificate for the following communication:

  • Connection to the vRealize Log Insight UI

  • SSL syslog transfers

  • Communication from the Log Insight agents through the Ingestion API

vRealize Log Insight accepts only PEM encoded certificates that include the complete certification chain. The private key must not be encrypted by a pass phrase.
