    How does Maestro use SSL for secure communications

    How does Maestro use SSL for secure communications?

    From Maestro 2.2, a certificate key pair, using SHA1 encryption with 2048 Bits, will be automatically generated on each Maestro Agent node that is added to the topology.
    After the key pair is generated, the Maestro Agent will provide the Maestro Center with its public key certificate.
    This process not only facilitates secure communications (AES-256bit) between Maestro Agents, but also enables Agent nodes to authenticate their identity to each other.

    Node States
    Topology nodes can be any of the following states: connected, disconnected or offline.

    * Connected and Secured using SSL
    A green circle inside the node indicates that the node is currently online and secured using SSL.


    * Missing SSL Key Pair
    When a Maestro Agent node is added to the topology, a certificate exchange process takes place during which a certificate key pair is generated on that node and signed by the Maestro Center. As part of the registration process, the node also provides Maestro Center with its public key. The certificate generation process not only facilitates secure communications between Maestro Agents, but also enables Agent nodes to authenticate each otherís identity.
    Sometimes however, the SSL registration process may not complete successfully. This may happen, for example, if a node is offline when it is added to the topology or is temporarily unreachable due to network problems. In such cases, a yellow circle will indicate that the node is missing its certificate.


    When this happens, you need to manually generate the key pair (after the issues that prevented the key pair from being auto-generated are resolved). To manually generate the key pair, right-click the node and select Regenerate SSL Key Pair from the context menu. After the key pair is successfully regenerated the circle color should change from yellow to green.
