Certificates and how they are used
Certificates ensure secure communication between Observer Platform products. The certificates encrypt this communication and help you the maintain the authenticity of device communication.
Certificates use public key infrastructure (PKI) to encrypt all product-to-product communication using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) cryptographic protocol. The communications that are encrypted include, but are not limited to:
Probe instance redirections
Capture data transfers
Trending data transfers
All other data transfers
Note: The initial handshake between Observer Platform products is not encrypted.
