Certificate verification mode

Configures the certificate checking behavior of the View Client.

When this property is set to 'No Security', no certificate checking is performed.

When this property is set to 'Warn But Allow', the user is warned but allowed to proceed if the server certificate is self-signed. If the server certificate is self-signed, the certificate name is allowed to not match the server name. This is the default value.

When this property is set to 'Full Security', all certificate errors are reported to the user and they are not allowed to connect to the server.

Supported on: VMware View Client
