On the General page, you can select the cryptographic library to be used and define the SSH Tectia tray icon settings.
- Configuration File
Shows the location of the user-specific Broker configuration file. The default location is "
Each time the configuration file is saved, a backup of the old configuration is stored in "
- Cryptographic Library
SSH Tectia Client can be operated in FIPS mode, using a version of the cryptographic library that has been validated according to the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2. In this mode, the cryptographic operations are performed according to the rules of the FIPS 140-2 standard.
Select whether to use the Standard or the FIPS 140-2 certified version of the cryptographic library.
Setting the FIPS mode does not prevent using algorithms from crypto plugins. For example, CryptiCore can be used even when the main crypto library is set in the FIPS mode. To enforce that only FIPS-compliant algorithms are used, disable the non-FIPS algorithms from the configuration. See Defining Ciphers, Defining MACs, Defining Ciphers, and Defining MACs.
- Connection Broker
Select whether to hide the SSH Tectia tray icon, and whether to show the Exit and Configuration options in the shortcut menu.
