This section describes how to install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console Server (also referred to as Kaspersky Security Center Web Console) on devices running the Linux operating system. Before installation, you must install a DBMS and the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server.

Use one of the following installation files that corresponds to the Linux distribution installed on your device:

  • For Debian—ksc-web-console-[build_number].x86_64.deb
  • For RPM-based operating systems—ksc-web-console-[build_number].x86_64.rpm
  • For ALT 8 SP—ksc-web-console-[build_number]-alt8p.x86_64.rpm

You receive the installation file by downloading it from the Kaspersky website.

To install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console:

  1. Make sure that the device on which you want to install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console is running one of the supported Linux distributions.
  2. Read the End User License Agreement (EULA). If the Kaspersky Security Center distribution kit does not include a TXT file with the text of the EULA, you can download the file from the Kaspersky website. If you do not accept the terms of the License Agreement, do not install the application.
  3. Create a response file that contains the parameters for connecting Kaspersky Security Center Web Console to the Administration Server. Name this file ksc-web-console-setup.json, and then place it in the following directory: /etc/ksc-web-console-setup.json.

    Example of a response file containing the minimal set of parameters and the default address and port:

    {

    "address": "127.0.0.1",

    "port": 8080,

    "trusted": "127.0.0.1|13299|/var/opt/kaspersky/klnagent_srv/1093/cert/klserver.cer|KSC Server",

    "acceptEula": true

    }

    When you install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console on the Linux ALT operating system, you must specify a port number other than 8080, because port 8080 is used by the operating system.

    Kaspersky Security Center Web Console cannot be updated by using the same .rpm installation file. If you want to change settings in a response file and use this file to reinstall the application, you must first remove the application, and then install it again with the new response file.

  4. Under an account with root privileges, use the command line to run the setup file with the .deb or .rpm extension, depending on your Linux distribution.
    • To install or upgrade Kaspersky Security Center Web Console from a .deb file, run the following command:

      $ sudo dpkg -i ksc-web-console-[build_number].deb

    • To install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console from an .rpm file, run the following command:

      $ sudo rpm -ivh --nodeps ksc-web-console-[build_number].x86_64.rpm

    • To upgrade from a previous version of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console, run one of the following commands:

      • For devices running RPM-based operating system:

        $ sudo rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force ksc-web-console-[build_number].x86_64.rpm

      • For devices running Debian-based operating system:

        $ sudo dpkg -i ksc-web-console-[build_number].x86_64.deb

    This starts unpacking of the setup file. Please wait until the installation is complete. Kaspersky Security Center Web Console is installed to the following directory: /var/opt/kaspersky/ksc-web-console.

When the installation is complete, you can use your browser to open and log in to Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.
