SSL certificate and key management

This is an infrastructure that provides management of SSL certificates, keys and profiles. Only RSA keys are supported. SSL/TLS is an application-layer protocol that provides secure transport between client and server through a combination of authentication, encryption and data integrity. SSL/TLS uses certificates and private-public key pairs to provide this security. A user can manage certificates, keys and also multiple SSL profiles. A SSL profile is a configuration which includes certificate, key and trusted CA certificates used in SSL/TLS communication. A SSL profile configuration can be attached to another EOS configuration which supports SSL/TLS communication. Individual EOS features that use this infrastructure will document the details of...

CVX secure out-of-band connection

This feature adds support for securing out-of-band connection between CVX server and CVX clients by SSL/TLS transport protocol. SSL/TLS is an application-layer protocol that provides secure transport between client and server through a combination of authentication, encryption and data integrity. SSL/TLS uses certificates and private-public key pairs to provide this security. We will use the term SSL to mean SSL/TLS. By default CVX server and CVX clients communicate over insecure transport. i.e., there is no authentication and encryption between CVX server and CVX clients. This opens up possibility of security risks such as communicating with untrusted CVX server and CVX clients, someone eavesdropping CVX server/client communication etc. This feature can be used to secure...
