In the TrueSight IT Data Analytics environment, various components can communicate with each other in a secure manner using TLS 1.2. These components are as follows:

  • Console Server
  • Search
  • CLI client
  • Collection Station and Collection Agent

You can enable TLS 1.2 on the supported communication channels after installing TrueSight IT Data Analytics. For more information, see Configuring a secured connection
