Controller and Panorama Node.
For the Panorama™ Controller to authenticate
each Panorama Node, create a unique certificate for each Panorama
Node. The Panorama Controller and Node use certificate-based authentication
to securely communicate with each other. Before you generate the
unique Panorama Node certificates, Obtain the CA Certificate for the Panorama Controller.
