| The HTTP protocol is a stateless protocol. To maintain a session, a session identifier is used. The session identifier is a piece of data that is used to identify a session and a user. If the session identifier is compromised by an attacker, the session can be hijacked. By encrypting the session identifier, the identifier becomes more difficult for an attacker to hijack, decrypt, and use before the session has expired.
tc Server connections are managed by the Connector object class. The Connector object can be configured to use a range of transport encryption methods. Many older transport encryption methods have been proven to be weak. vRA should be configured to use modern, secure forms of transport encryption. |
