> We hard-coded the Ambari Agents to ignore certification
> verification. But the reason why this was required was Python be un-secure by
> default:  
> <https://access.redhat.com/articles/2039753>  
> <https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0476/>
> That method will cause signed certificates to not serve any purpose & is
> discouraged by RedHat & Python security experts:
> > "It is also possible, though highly discouraged , to globally disable
> verification by monkeypatching the ssl module in versions of Python"
> Instead we should abstract it to a setting (e.g. ssl_verify_cert) in the
> ambari-agent.ini such that users can turn certification verification if they
> provide a signed/trusted certificate.
