Using SSL in a VMP Failover Environment

If you want to use SSL in a clustered VMP Server environment, Vocera recommends that you put an SSL certificate on each node on which a VMP Server is running. This ensures that all internal traffic between the Load Balancer and each of the individual servers is secure, which may be a requirement in your jurisdiction if you are transmitting patient information.

Tip: Although a self-signed certificate is supported, it is best to use a publicly-registered SSL certificate for each VMP Server in your cluster.

To determine whether you need an SSL certificate for your Load Balancer to ensure end-to-end encryption, consult the specifications provided by the manufacturer of the Load Balancer.
