Description (partial)

The certificate use for product HTPS communication is returned from cisco with a lifetime of 15 years. For SOC II compliance, this cert can not be longer than 2 years.
When the tg_cert is expired then the HTPS communication between products and the OnPrem transport gateway will fail.

The tg_cert is only updated on or after it has expired - this tracks changes to renew the cert 1 year before it expires. A change for the tg_sert valid period from 15 years to 2 years will come in future.

• Behavior for release prior to 8-20404 is TG Cert will renew only once it has expired 
• Behavior for release 8-20404 is TG Cert will renew one year after it has expired
• Behavior for release 8-20406 is TG Cert will renew one year before expiring
