Hello guys,

is there documentation somewhere explaining roles of default certificates, especially cacert.pem/ca.pem :

cacert.pem : SplunkCommonCA

ca.pem : SplunkCommonCA with private key (no pwd)

server.pem : server certificate, can be renewed by deleting + restart splunkd

Thanks 🙂

nothing about ca.pem

Not clear, it seems cacert.pem is for management port and ca.pem for web, of course server.pem for the server certificate.
