Client certificate authentication can be used with Terminal Viewers. You can set up client (personal) certificates to provide user authentication so that users will not have to provide user names and passwords when they access MCS. You must have set up SSL on the MCS server before you can set up client certificates, although you could use the demonstration certificate for this purpose. The demonstration certificate should be used only for testing; it should not be used in a production environment.
For more information about the demonstration certificate, see the topic SSL Certificates.
When you set up client certificate authentication, a client certificate is installed on each client computer and a CA (certificate authority) certificate for that client certificate is installed on the MCS server.
