User authentication / Device certificates

– from SCG 1 2201

For each device, after the onboarding process, the system creates a client authentication certificate so that users do not need to perform an additional logon for the SCG. For further information, see Device certificates.

Configure the validity of the device certificates and the behavior when the validity expires. Expiring certificates can be renewed automatically. Alternatively or additionally, you may manually renew certificates for selected devices in the Devices view.
