Configure Confidential Manager Communication Encryption

This procedure describes how to change the Confidential Manager communication encryption settings on the UCMDB Server. These settings specify how the communication between the Confidential Manager client and the Confidential Manager server is encrypted. This change is automatically sent to Probes (as an encrypted string), unless the UCMDB server is configured to not automatically do this. For details, see Disable Automatic Synchronization of the Confidential Manager Client Authentication and Encryption Settings Between the Server and Probes.
