[Gluster-users] What’s the purpose of /var/lib/glusterd/nfs/secret.pem.pub ?

Some time ago I read and followed this quide for installing and
configuring Gluster:

with steps to create certificate:


and distribute public and private cert file among nodes.

I’ve just tried new Gluster 3.12 and I forgot to create the
certificate and I created new cluster and it worked:

sudo gluster peer probe SecondNode
peer probe: success.
sudo gluster peer probe ThirdNode
peer probe: success.

After I mounted Gluster volumes everything seems to work and Gluster
replicates files.
So why do I need the certificate?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
