You can grant a new client access to all the data of an encrypted camera by importing the encryption certificate (private key) of another client that does have access.

Before you begin

IMPORTANT: Private keys must be handled with care. See Best practices for managing private keys.

Procedure

  1. Export the certificate of an authorized client machine with the private key.
  2. Import the certificate with the private key to the new client machine.

Results

The new client now has all the access rights granted to the original client through the imported encryption certificate. If the original client has access to more than one encrypted camera through this certificate, the new client now has access as well.
