About security certificates in NetBackup
NetBackup uses security certificates to authenticate NetBackup hosts. The security certificates conform to the X.509 Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) standard. A master server acts as the Certificate Authority (CA) and issues digital certificates to hosts.
NetBackup provides two types of NetBackup host security certificates: Host ID-based certificates and host name-based certificates.
A security certificate is mandatory when you want to establish a connection with NetBackup hosts.
Generating a security certificate is a one-time activity.
For more information on certificate deployment in a clustered NetBackup setup, see the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide.
