Using certificates would remove the need to manage passwords and keep them synced with local accounts. There was an update to the API to allow secure+ certificates to be used for authentication. I believe the same concept can be used for File Agents.
How will this idea be used?
We already have over 600 Connect:Direct File Agents deployed throughout all of our environments. Managing all the passwords and syncing them between sites becomes cumbersome since we are not allowed to centralize accounts. Switching to certificates would reduce our management effort and increase security since there is no longer a need to store the password in the File Agent configuration.
