    Correct Answer is A:True

    Encryption and Security Certificates for ESXi and vCenter Server :

    ESXi and vCenter Server support standard X.509 version 3 (X.509v3) certificates to encrypt session information sent over Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol connections between components. If SSL is enabled, data is private, protected, and cannot be modified in transit without detection.

    All network traffic is encrypted as long as the following conditions are true:

    ■ You did not change the Web proxy service to allow unencrypted traffic for the port.

    ■ Your firewall is configured for medium or high security.

    Certificate checking is enabled by default and SSL certificates are used to encrypt network traffic. However, ESXi and vCenter Server use automatically generated certificates that are created as part of the installation process and stored on the server system.
