The security of your environment depends on the validity and trust of the management components certificates.
To generate certificates, you use the CertGenVVS utility. See Certificate Generation Utility for VMware Validated Solutions. You regenerate and replace certificates in the following cases:
If certificates are approaching expiration.
If certificates expired.
If certificates are compromised.
If certificate attributes (for example, host name or organization name) require changes.
For information on the certificate management design for the Cloud-Based Automation for VMware Cloud Foundation validated solution, see Certificate Management Design for VMware Aria Automation for Cloud-Based Automation for VMware Cloud Foundation.
