OpsCenter daemon (opscenterd) SSL configuration options

SSL configuration options available in opscenterd.conf:
[agents] agent_certfile
The location of the certfile sent to the DataStax Agents when using SSL communication between OpsCenter and the DataStax Agents. The default location is /var/lib/opscenter/ssl/agentKeyStore.der for package installations and install_location/ssl/agentKeyStore.der for tarball installations.
[agents] agent_keyfile
The location of the keyfile sent to the DataStax Agents when using SSL communication between OpsCenter and the DataStax Agents. The default location is /var/lib/opscenter/ssl/agentKeyStore for package installations and install_location/ssl/agentKeyStore for tarball installations.
Note: Do not use the agent_keyfile when manually generating and deploying keys.
[agents] agent_keyfile_raw
The raw keystore file stored in the Java keystore from agent_keyfile. This parameter is required only when configuring high availability, so that the secondary OpsCenter instance can communicate with the primary OpsCenter instance. The failover opscenterd processes on the secondary OpsCenter instance use this key to establish a STOMP connection to the primary opscenterd instance.
[agents] ssl_certfile
The location of the SSL certificate used for SSL traffic between OpsCenter and the DataStax Agents. The default location is /var/lib/opscenter/ssl/opscenter.der for package installations and install_location/ssl/opscenter.der for tarball installations.
[agents] ssl_keyfile
The location of the SSL key file used for SSL traffic between OpsCenter and the DataStax Agents. The default location is /var/lib/opscenter/ssl/opscenter.key for package installations and install_location/ssl/opscenter.key for tarball installations.
[agents] use_ssl
Specifies whether traffic between OpsCenter and the DataStax Agents should use SSL. The default value is False.
[webserver] ssl_certfile
The location where the SSL certificate resides. This option requires ssl_keyfile and optionally ssl_port to also be set.
[webserver] ssl_keyfile
The location where the SSL keyfile resides. This option requires ssl_certfile and optionally ssl_port to also be set.
[webserver] ssl_port
The port on which to serve SSL traffic. The default port is 8443.
