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.

Using the TLS communication protocol assures data encryption authentication when the Application Servers exchange confidential information. Since Application Servers can have multiple DNS names and multiple digital certificates, TLS ensures that the certificate for the Application Server matches the DNS name used by the client and other Application Servers when they communicate. The following figures illustrates the TLS protocol communication process.

Domain Controller & Certificate Authority connects to both Application Server and Client. Application Servers connect to each other via TSP/IP and TLS channel. Application Servers connect to Data File Directory.
