Cloud Agent certificates??

Hi all,


I'm currently having trouble trying to figure something out. Can someone provide an understanding as to how the Cloud Agent authenticates to the Qualys Cloud platform? Is the agent packaged with certificates that allow them to authenticate to cloud? 


1. Does it use certificates? Where are these certificates stored and what certificates are they.

2. Does the agent installation install a CA into the computer's trusted root cert directories?


How does it work?? Please help!
