Configure Certificates

You manage certificates by creating trust stores on the Log Collector. The Log Collector refers to these trust stores to determine whether or not the event sources are trusted.

Note: You can configure custom certificates for one or more event sources: for details, see (Optional) Configure Custom Certificates on Log Collectors.
