Certificate Credentials Library

The Certificate Credentials Library allows you to import and store certificates for use at a later time.

Typically, you need to associate credentials with component monitors and templates to enable them to retrieve application data. For added security, SAM offers the ability to store certificates in the Certificate Credentials Library.

Certificates can be used for authentication with Linux devices monitored in SAM. Linux, Unix, and Nagios script monitors also support certificate based authentication.

The PEM format (OpenSSH) is supported.
