Federated Certificate Management

Overview

Effective CloudCenter 4.2, each CloudCenter component has a certificate as its identity. All required components (CCM, CCO, Guacamole, and the monitor) belonging to the same CloudCenter deployment share the Cloud Center ID (CCID) and uses a component name identifier in the certificate. See Certificate Authentication for additional context.
