Enabling TLS 1.2 for PATROL Agent to Integration Service communication


By default, the PATROL Agent communicates using either Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, but you can configure PATROL Agents to enable TLS 1.2 mode. 

The following process workflow guides you to configure the PATROL Agent to Integration Service communication to be TLS compliant:

 

 

  1. Ensure that the signed certificates are generated for the Integration Service and imported into the PATROL Agent's client DB certificate store. 
    To generate signed certificates for the Integration Service, see Implementing private certificates in the Integration Service.

  2. Ensure that the PATROL Agent and the TrueSight Integration Service are running at the same security level.
    • To change the PATROL Agent's security level, see  Changing the PATROL Agent's security level .
    • To change the Integration Service's security level, see  Changing the Integration Service's security level .

  3. Configure the PATROL Agent to Integration Service communication to enable TLS mode.
  4. Update the PATROL Agent's registry files. 
    For details, see  Updating the PATROL Agent registry files

  5. Update the Integration Service's registry files. 
    For details, see  Updating the Integration Service registry files .
