About both ends of a tunnel as CAS

This configuration example uses public key authentication to connect two Smoothwalls, each with their own Certificate Authority so that they can manage their own site-to-site and road warrior connections.

The following assumptions have been made:

  • Two Smoothwalls.
  • Each Smoothwall has its own Certificate Authority.
  • Each Certificate Authority has created a signed certificate for its own local Smoothwall.

The tunnel can now be established and authenticated between the two Smoothwalls. In addition, each Smoothwall can manage its own site-to-site and road warrior connections autonomously by using its own Certificate Authority to create additional certificates.
