Tungsten Clustering supports and is by default configured to use SSL, TLS and certificates for both communication and authentication for all components within the system. This security is enabled by default and includes:
Authentication between command-line tools (cctrl), and between and background services.
SSL/TLS between command-line tools and background services.
SSL/TLS between Tungsten Replicator and datasources.
SSL/TLS between Tungsten Connector and datasources.
File permissions and access by all components.
If you are using a single staging directory to handle your complete installation, tpm will automatically create the necessary certificates for you. If you fit in the below categories, you will need to use manually generated certificates.
Installing via INI File
Installing heterogeneous replication using independent configurations
MSMM, Cluster-Slave replication or anything using multiple Continuent packages
Installing from multiple Staging Directories
Installing from a staging host will automatically generate certificates and configuration for a secured installation. No further changes or actions are required.
