What is a trust relationship?

A trust relationship is a method by which Address Manager servers can securely establish trust between each other through the exchange of SSH Keys (SHA512). A trust relationship between Address Managers is a prerequisite to configuring replication in Address Manager v9.0.0 and greater, and will be used for other services in future releases.
