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.

TLS is used in conjunction with Microsoft Certification Authority®, to generate digital certificates. For organizations that use sensitive, confidential information or are subject to stringent security regulation, deploying TLS on the server and client is the best assurance against compromising communication integrity, specifically:

  • Peer identity can be authenticated using public key cryptography, allowing the safe exchange of encrypted information.
  • Message contents cannot be modified en route between TLS negotiated hosts.

Using TLS with Ivanti Device and Application Control affects:

  • Ivanti Device and Application Control client-Application Server communication
  • Ivanti Device and Application Control inter-Application Server communication
