The security configuration files, clientConnect.conf and serverConnect.conf, located in the BASEDIR/smarts/conf directory of each VMware Smart Assurance software installation, enable you to set up secure connections between the component applications in a Topology Split Manager deployment. By default, the configuration option settings in the clientConnect.conf file and the serverConnect.conf files enable minimally secure connections between the components.

The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide presents detailed information about VMware Smart Assurance secure communications.
