The JavaTM Web Console that is used to launch the N1 System Manager's browser interface uses self-signed certificates. These certificates should be treated with the appropriate level of trust by clients and users.
The terminal emulator applet that is used by the browser interface for the serial console feature does not provide a certificate-based authentication of the applet. The applet also requires that you enable SSHv1 for the management server. For certificate-based authentication or to avoid enabling SSHv1, use the serial console feature by running the connect command from the n1sh shell.
SSH fingerprints that are used to connect from the management server to the provisioning network interfaces on the provisionable servers are automatically acknowledged by the N1 System Manager software. This automation might make the provisionable servers vulnerable to “man-in-the middle” attacks.
The Web Console (Sun ILOM Web GUI) autologin feature for Sun Fire X4100 and Sun Fire X4200 servers exposes the server's management processor credentials to users who can view the web page source for the Login page. To avoid this security issue, disable the autologin feature by running the n1smconfig utility. See Configuring the N1 System Manager System in Sun N1 System Manager 1.2 Installation and Configuration Guide for details.
