may accept unverified certificates. The generated certificate should
only be valid for the time necessary to move the instance.
For additional protection of the instance data, the two clusters can
verify the certificates exchanged via the third party by signing them
using HMAC with a key shared among the involved clusters. If the third
party does not know this secret, it can't forge the certificates and
redirect the data. Unless disabled by a new cluster parameter, verifying
the HMAC must be mandatory. The HMAC will be prepended to the
certificate and only covers the certificate (from ``-----BEGIN
CERTIFICATE-----`` to ``-----END CERTIFICATE-----``).

server requiring verifiable client certificates. The browser would be
equivalent to the source cluster and must verify the server's
