Creating a new communication data package for a connector

When an unmanageable connector is added, a communication data package is automatically created for this connector. If necessary, you can create a new communication data package for a connector (for example, if the certificate from the previous communication data package has been compromised).

After a new communication data package is created, the certificate from the old communication data package becomes invalid. For this reason, you will have to use the new communication data package the next time you connect a recipient system through this connector.

To create a new communication data package for an unmanageable connector:

  1. Connect to the Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Networks Server through the web interface using the Administrator account.
  2. Select Settings → Connectors.
  3. On the Connectors tab, select the unmanageable connector for which you want to create a new communication data package.

    The details area appears in the right part of the web interface window.

  4. Click the Get new communication data package button.

    The Generating a new communication data package window opens.

  5. Specify the settings for generating the communication data package:
    • User name that the recipient system will use to connect to the application through the connector. You must indicate the name of one of the application users.

      It is recommended to specify the user name that was indicated when adding the connector. If you need to specify the name of a different user, you are advised to select an application user account that was not indicated for other connectors and is not being used to connect to the Server through the web interface.

    • Address of the node where the connector application modules are running.
    • Password for accessing the connector certificate. Using the defined password, the certificate will be encrypted in the communication data package of the connector.
  6. Click the Create communication data package button.

The Server generates a new communication data package for the selected connector, then the browser saves the downloaded file. Depending on your browser settings, your screen may show a window in which you can change the path and name of the saved file. You will need to upload the contents of the obtained communication data package to the application that uses the connector. Otherwise, a new connection through the connector will be impossible for this app.
