You can use vCloud Connector with self-signed certificates, although you should replace the certificates with valid certificates for production use. The vCloud Connector server and vCloud Connector nodes include self-signed certificates.

If you get a certificate warning while logging in to the server or node Admin Web consoles, accept the certificate. To avoid getting the warning upon each log in, import the certificate into your browser.
