Appendix A Connection Broker Configuration Tools

The Connection Broker is a component included in Tectia ConnectSecure, and it handles all cryptographic operations and authentication-related tasks for Tectia ConnectSecure. For this reason, all authentication and connection profile settings are made in the Connection Broker configuration.

The Connection Broker configuration can be edited and viewed via the Tectia Connections Configuration GUI. For instructions, see Tectia Connections Configuration GUI.

The Connection Broker stores the settings in an XML-based configuration file ssh-broker-config.xml. It is possible to edit the configuration file directly with an ASCII-text editor or an XML editor. For description of the configuration file, see ssh-broker-config(5).
