NordVPN asks if I should trust the Eset SSL Filter CA. Gives thumbprint and Expiration date.

The  thumbprint is 7ea162b621a856ea3c8d5b568cdd8f51f22c4e73 expiration date 5/2/2023. I would like to verify that this is legitimately Eset. Google returned nothing when I searched this pop up message. Should I be posting in NordVPN forums?

Is that a typo? The Eset cert. in my Win root CA store has an expiration date of 5/2/2032.

As far as thumbprint verification goes, Eset when installed creates a unique cert. for each installation.

I suspect what NordVPN is objecting to is the cert. is self-signed. Use certmgr.msc and verify that the Eset cert. stored in the Win root CA store thumbprint matches what you posted.

I suspect NordVPN presented this warning: https://support.nordvpn.com/Connectivity/1047409912/Nordvpn-com-is-telling-me-Invalid-security-certificate.htm ? Eset SSL/TLS protocol scanning feature uses its Win root CA store certificate to intercept HTTPS traffic, unencrypt it, and examine it for malware activity. Bottom line - You have to set NordVPN to trust Eset's certificate.

Thanks for replying. Yeah, I did make a typo. Thanks for clearing that up. I had no idea about the certmgr.msc program until today.  This has solved my post.

Can you please clarify what exactly I am supposed to check? I am having the same problem as the OP. Do you mean that if I open certmgr.msc and find ESET SSL Filter CA certificate with the same thumbprint as the one that pops up in the message I get from NordVPN, everything it legit?
