Red Hat Certified Architect program changes

Red Hat Certified Architect is the highest level of certification Red Hat offers.  We are making some changes to the program and the way that we position it to help IT organizations and professionals worldwide better understand the program and what it means to be an RHCA.

Most significantly Remote Execution relies on ssh, instead of a client side daemon. This change introduces some new security considerations for hardened environments. Let’s take a closer look.
