CA signed secure connection between the UD Agent and the probe

As a security enforcement, the communication between the UD Agent and the UCMDB probe should use CA signed certificates and not self-signed certificates.

Great idea! I proposed it as well along with a recommendation to wrap a UI around certificate creation to make it simple:

Hello,

 

It is not an option, it is a mast to have this feature.

Our bank can't pass the PCI-DSS audit due to findings on the self-signed certificate between DFP & UDAs, it should CA-Signed certificate.

Our management asked us to look for another CMDB solution to close this finding.
