Domain Security - Secure Communication

Domain Security - Secure Communication

After you select the domain, you can configure domain security.
  1. Specify whether to use the default Informatica SSL certificates or to use your SSL certificates to secure domain communication.
    1. Select the type of SSL certificates to use.
      The following table describes the options for the SSL certificates that you can use to secure the Informatica domain:
      Option
      Description
      Use the default Informatica SSL certificates
      Use the default SSL certificates contained in the default keystore and truststore.
      If you do not provide an SSL certificate, Informatica uses the same default private key for all Informatica installations. If you use the default Informatica keystore and truststore files, the security of your domain could be compromised. To ensure a high level of security for the domain, select the option to specify the location of the SSL certificate files.
      Use custom SSL certificates
      Specify the path for the keystore and truststore files that contain the SSL certificates. You must also specify the keystore and truststore passwords.
      You can provide a self-signed certificate or a certificate issued by a certificate authority (CA). You must provide SSL certificates in PEM format and in Java Keystore (JKS) files. Informatica requires specific names for the SSL certificate files for the Informatica domain. You must use the same SSL certificates for all nodes in the domain. Store the truststore and keystore files in a directory accessible to all the nodes in the domain and specify the same keystore file directory and truststore file directory for all nodes in the same domain.
    2. If you provide the SSL certificate, specify the location and passwords of the keystore and truststore files.
      The following table describes the parameters that you must enter for the SSL certificate files:
      Property
      Description
      Keystore file directory
      Directory that contains the keystore files. The directory must contain files named infa_keystore.jks.
      Keystore password
      Password for the keystore infa_keystore.jks.
      Truststore file directory
      Directory that contains the truststore files. The directory must contain files named infa_truststore.jks and infa_truststore.pem.
      Truststore password
      Password for the infa_truststore.jks file.
