Configuring a policy-based mesh topology

Example of a scenario:

A company has its headquarters and two other sites in England and one site abroad. Every site has its own Research and Development department and the four R&D sub-networks need to share information. Every site is protected by a firewall managed by the SMC server.

The authentication method selected is X509 certificate authentication.

The certification authority that issues certificates can be found on one of the SNS firewalls, such as the headquarters, for example, or may be an external authority.
