RiOS 5.5 SSL Enhancements


With 5.0, we have SSL auto-discovery so that administrators can whitelist or blacklist peers very easily and the peers are automatically discovered upon the first SSL connection and appear in the self-signed peer gray list. You simply mark them as trusted. The connections are not optimized until after you move the peers to the trusted whitelist. Both the client-side and server-side Steelhead appliances must use RiOS 5.0 or later.
