Description Petr Matousek 2012-11-10 20:21:01 UTC
When new node image is being created, vdsm.rpm is added to the node image and self-signed key (and certificate) is created. This key/cert allows vdsm to start and serve requests from anyone who has a matching key/cert which could be anybody holding the node image.
