Inter communication protocols and encryption

    Hello,

    Using DAM product with gateways and agent setup, i would like to know a few precision on how inter-communication elements are working as i received some security audit question.

    I've seen those docs:
    https://docs.imperva.com/bundle/v12.6-administration-guide/page/8751.htm

    https://docs.imperva.com/bundle/v14.4-dam-management-server-manager-user-guide/page/60593.htm

    It's possible to perform certificate client authentication between agents and gateways but in case the configuration is password based:

    Which protocols are used between those and are there any server-based encryption ? :
    - Gateways and MX
    - Agent and Gateways

    Thank you

    Hi there,

    I have just come across your post and thought I'd let you know that the communication is based on SSL (depending on configuration).

    I hope this helps.
