SSL certificates#

The Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal API requires you to use a client certificate to authenticate when connecting to their servers.

To use an SSL certificate, it must be:

  • Accessible on the EclecticIQ Intelligence Center host.

  • Placed in a location that can be accessed by the eclecticiq user.

  • Owned by eclecticiq:eclecticiq.

To make sure that EclecticIQ Intelligence Center can access the SSL certificate:

  1. Upload the SSL certificate to a location on the EclecticIQ Intelligence Center host.

  2. On the EclecticIQ Intelligence Center host, open the terminal.

  3. Change ownership of the SSL certificate by running as root in the terminal:

    chown eclecticiq:eclecticiq /path/to/cert.pem

    Where /path/to/cert.pem is the location of the SSL certificate EclecticIQ Intelligence Center needs to access.
