Secure communication in global clusters

In global clusters, VCS provides the option of making the following types of communication secure:

For secure authentication, the wide-area connector process gets a security context as an account in the local authentication broker on each cluster node.

The WAC account belongs to the same domain as HAD and Command Server and is specified as:

    name = WAC
    domain = VCS_SERVICES@cluster_uuid

You must configure the wide-area connector process in all clusters to run in secure mode. If the wide-area connector process runs in secure mode, you must run the Steward in secure mode.
