Severity Plugin Id Name
Medium(6.4) 51192 SSL Certificate Cannot Be Trusted
Medium(6.4) 57582 SSL Self-Signed Certificate
Medium(5.0) 45411 SSL Certificate with Wrong Hostname
NetBackup and NetBackup Appliances generate a self-signed SSL certificate during first time hostname configuration which is by design and is not an issue.
So "SSL Certificate Cannot Be Trusted" and "SSL Self-Signed Certificate" reported vulnerabilities can be safely ignored.
For the "SSL Certificate with Wrong Hostname" issue on appliances, a fully qualified hostname should be used for the Configuration of hostname step during the appliance setup to avoid this vulnerability alert.
- NetBackup 7.x, 8.x, 9.x
- Appliances 2.x, 3.x, 4.x
- Any security vulnerability scanning application (Nessus, Tenable, Qualys, etc.)
