What is a database certificate?

A unique certificate is created for each database. This has the name psrDatabaseKey:

The database certificate does not encrypt the database. Rather, it is used for the encrypted transfer of passwords from the client to the server in the following cases:

  • Creation of a WebViewer via a task
  • Creation of an AD profile protected by a master key
  • Login of users imported from AD in Master Key mode

Exporting and importing the certificate

The section certificates explains how to back up the certificate and link it again.
