What are Cisco Call Manager Certificates?
The Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses both server and client certificates to secure and authenticate HTTP connections as well as other protocols. Server or own certificates are used to facilitate encrypted connections to the servers and authenticate the server to clients. Client or trust certificates provide authentication for users of the servers.
Certificates are assigned uses and a validity period on creation. This makes it critical to monitor the expiry of these certificates as communication will fail of incorrect or expired certificates are used.
How to monitor Cisco Call Manager Certificates?
