About certificate support for the TELNET protocol

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automatically accepts any server certificate that the connection offers and does not verify the trust chain on the TELNET certificate. In addition, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not support client certificate selection so if TELNET requires that the client present a certificate that is signed by a recognized authority, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cannot support that configuration.
