2. Use an internal enterprise certificate

The self-signed certificate generated during installation is located in the '/elkeid/nginx/nginx' directory on the machine where nginx is located, and includes the following two files:


After replacing the above two files, do the following:

chown -R nginx: nginx /elkeid/nginx
systemctl restart elkeid_nginx

3. Use the self-signed certificate generated at deployment time

When Elkeid is deployed, it can only use a self-signed certificate. Due to the security settings of chrome, it cannot be accessed directly. All you need to manually trust the certificate to access it using https. The specific operation is as follows: The following example hypotheses that the server where nginx is located is console.elkeid.org and has a configuration of /etc/hosts or dns parsing.
