Transport Layer Security
T-Server supports the standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol, which offers confidentiality, integrity protection, and data compression to client/server applications. T-Server also supports TLS connections with Management Framework, T-Library clients, and between internal T-Server components (T-Server and UCMA Connector). Any matching TLS certificates can be used for secure connection (not just produced by Genesys). For a detailed description of how the TLS protocol works, see the relevant RFCs:
- RFC 5246—The Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol
- RFC 4568—Session Description Protocol (SDP) Security Descriptions for Media Streams
- RFC 3711—The Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP)
You can also find a more general description of TLS and how Genesys uses the protocol in the Genesys Security Deployment Guide.
Configuring TLS Between T-Server and Connector
From release 9.0, the Connector is fully integrated with Genesys configuration layer and a secure connection can be configured between Connector and T-Server by configuring the Connector port as secure. For more information on configuring secure connections between Genesys components, please see the Secure Connections (TLS) page of the Genesys Security Deployment Guide.
