The N1 System Manager uses strong encryption techniques and common agent container security keys to ensure secure communication between the management server and each managed server.
The security keys used by the N1 System Manager must be identical across all servers. Under normal operation, the security keys used by the keys can be left in their default configuration. You should regenerate the security keys if any of the following cases occur:
The root password of the management server has been exposed or compromised.
The system date on the management server has been changed using the date command. This raises the risk that because the management server date is out of synchronization, no N1 System Manager services will start the next time that the N1 System Manager is restarted.
In each of the above cases, the security keys must be regenerated, and the N1 System Manager management daemon restarted, as described in To Regenerate Common Agent Container Security Keys.
