Device Control Server, Database and Client Process
The Application Server communicates between the database and the protected client computers.
The following describes the communication process flow between the Device Control servers, database, and clients when using Device Control.
- Using Certification Authority
The Microsoft Certification Authority (CA) issues and manages digital certificates for a network environment.
- Using the Transport Layer Security
The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols that provide security and data integrity for communications over TCP/IP networks.
- Device Control Client-Application Server Communication
Ivanti Device and Application Control is based on standard TCP/IP protocols for all communication between clients and servers.
- Device Control Inter-Application Server Communication
An Ivanti Device and Application Control implementation employing multiple Application Servers uses distributed data file directories (DFDs), combined with TLS authentication to assure the integrity of confidential, sensitive data.
