Enabling or disabling CIM client and indication mutual authentication
When you enable client mutual authentication, all CIM client and indication requests to the SMI
Agent must pass credentials (KeyStore and TrustStore) to validate the requests. The KeyStore file
provides the credentials and the TrustStore file verifies the credentials. When you enable indication
mutual authentication, both the CIM client and the CIMOM server maintain the TrustStore files.
The CIM client KeyStore file sends credentials to be validated by the CIMOM server TrustStrore file
for any communication from the CIM client to the CIMOM server and the CIMOM server KeyStore
file sends credentials to be validated by the CIM client TrustStrore file for any communication from
the CIMOM server to the CIM client
To enable or disable CIM client and indication mutual authentication, complete the following steps.
