User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to use certificate-based authentication instead of using credentials.

Details of User Story

Instead of using credentials to enter PRTGs webinterface (with every associated application), we'd like to use certificate based authentication. It would allow us easier management of new users by simply distributing the certificates to the corresponding client(s).

Acceptance criteria

  • Users can authenticate via certificate using their browser, mobile apps and PRTG Desktop.
  • Certificates can be managed (and revoked) within PRTG easily
