The article concerns the following versions of Kaspersky Security Center 10:

  • Service Pack 3 (version 10.5.1781.0)
  • Service Pack 2 Maintenance Release 1 (version 10.4.343)

Mobile device users can download standalone installation packages for Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Android and management profiles for iOS (iOS MDM) from the Kaspersky Security Center 10 Web server. Web server authenticity can be verified using the certificates. When the user downloads Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Android, the Web server certificate encrypts the connection between the server and the device.

Standalone packages and management profiles are automatically published to the Web server as soon as they are created and become available for download via HTTPS. Management profiles are automatically deleted from the Web Server after they are installed to the user’s mobile device. 

Possible issues with Kaspersky Security Center 10 certificates

When a Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Android standalone package or an iOS MDM profile is downloaded from the Web Server or the Self-Service Portal, the browser on the mobile device can identify the certificate signed by Kaspersky Security Center 10 as untrusted. In such cases the download fails.  

To avoid these issues:

  • Install Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android from Google Play.
  • Use trusted root certificates. 

How to set a root certificate for the web server 

  1. Open Kaspersky Security Center 10.
  2. Open the properties of the Administration Server.
  3. Go to Web server.
  4. Set the certificate for the Web server.
    • Specify certificate through Administration Server tools — the certificate will be created automatically by Kaspersky Security Center 10. 
    • Specify another certificate — specify the file of the Web server root certificate.
  5. Click OK.
