If you have two boxes, A and B, then both must know
each other's certifying authorities. Or both must have
certificates issued from the same CA. A presents a
cert to B, how does B validate that its valid?? By
checking with its own CA or by checking with A's CA.
Get this straight if you want to use certificate based

Yes, you can use pre-shared keys in Checkpoint. But
using certs is definitely more secure and robust.
