Using SSL certificates for VMware vSphere Components

Streaming the certificate replacement and management process in a VMware environment can be challenging at times. For instance, changing certificates for a vCenter 5.1 is a hugely laborious process.

To be honest I had no chance to test it because I avoid signed SSL certificates if possible. However when I'll have a customer who requires SSL I definitely have to evaluate VSS Labs solution.
