Introduction

Cisco has determined that patches related to security certificate needs to be installed by MeetingPlace customers running the Cisco WebEx Node for MCS; in order to ensure secure operation using 2048-bit-certificates between such nodes and the WebEx Node Management System. Failure to install the patch within the timeline outlined below will result in service outage and disruption once the WebEx Node Management System in the Cloud has been upgraded.


Please reference the readme file for each patch for specific install directions and details.
