Encryption using AES-256

When creating a new Datastore in the Console (version 10.1 or higher), Ivanti Automation automatically uses AES-256 encryption to secure the data (for example, credentials/passwords and security context).

The use of AES-256 encryption is only available for new Ivanti Automation Datastores and all Dispatchers, Consoles and Agents must be running on Ivanti Automation 10.1 (or higher). Downgrading a Datastore with AES-256 encryption to an earlier version (version 10 or lower) is not supported. Also, (re)connecting a legacy Console or Management Portal (version 10 or lower) to an AES-256 encrypted environment is not supported.

The communication between Dispatchers and Agents is automatically secured by protocol encryption (SSL).

In migration scenarios, it is possible to import Building Blocks to fill your Datastore. See also Building Blocks using AES-256 encryption.

Agents for Unix/Linux

AES-256 encryption is not supported for Agents running on the following platforms:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.5 (x86/x64)
  • Sun Solaris 10 for SPARC
  • Sun Solaris 10 for Intel
