TLS 1.3 communication between Control Center and Connect Direct Nodes

add the ability to monitor / configure (communicate) between Control Center Monitor / Director and Connect Direct nodes via TLS 1.3.

Today CD nodes of all OS varieties support TLS 1.3 and no versions of Control Center support TLS 1.3


What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

Enhance security by allowing ONLY TLS 1.3 communication with Connect Direct nodes rather than having to allow an older version simply for communication with Control Center
