BMC Server Automation Console to Application Server
For traffic between the BMC Server Automation Console and an Application Server, BMC Server Automation relies on TLS to secure communication between client and server and single sign-on credentials to authenticate client users.
Client users obtain single sign-on credentials by authenticating themselves to the BMC Server Automation Authentication Service. The BMC Server Automation Authentication Service supports many authentication mechanisms. SRP is the default user authentication mechanism.
A default BMC Server Automation installation sets up a single sign-on system using SRP authentication and TLS session layer security. Additional configuration is necessary if you want to customize the default behavior or use other authentication protocols. For implementation details, see Implementing single sign-on.
