Set up a Client to Master Validation Fingerprint
In highly secure network configurations you may wish to ensure your Salt clients are connecting a specific master.
To set up validation from client to master enter the master’s fingerprint within the
/etc/salt/minion configuration file.
See the following procedure:
On the master enter the following command as root and note the fingerprint:
salt-key -F master
On your client, open the
/etc/salt/minionconfiguration file. Uncomment the following line and enter the master’s fingerprint replacing the example fingerprint:
Restart the salt-minion service:
# systemctl restart salt-minion
