Use of Encryption
Hitachi ID Group Manager uses encryption as follows:
- Administrator credentials, used to connect to AD and to network resources.
- Communication between the main Group Manager server and Group Manager proxy servers is via TCP/IP, protected using AES, encrypted using a shared key.
- Communication between multiple Group Manager servers, to replicate data and support high availability and load balancing, is protected using AES, encrypted using a shared key.
- Communication between IT staff, using web browsers and the Group Manager web user interface is using HTTP over SSL (HTTPS).
