Configure the Client for a Secure Domain

Configure the Client for a Secure Domain

When you enable secure communication within the domain, you also secure connections between the domain and Informatica client applications. Based on the truststore files used, you might need to specify the location and password for the truststore files in environment variables on each client host.
You might need to set the following environment variables on each client host:
INFA_TRUSTSTORE
Set this variable to the directory that contains the truststore files for the SSL certificates. The directory must contain truststore files named
infa_truststore.jks
and
infa_truststore.pem
.
INFA_TRUSTSTORE_PASSWORD
Set this variable to the password for the
infa_truststore.jks
file. The password must be encrypted. Use the command line program
pmpasswd
to encrypt the password.
Informatica provides an SSL certificate that you can use to secure the domain. When you install the Informatica clients, the installer sets the environment variables and installs the truststore files in the following directory by default:
<Informatica installation directory>\clients\shared\security
If you use the default Informatica SSL certificate, and the
infa_truststore.jks
and
infa_truststore.pem
are in the default directory, you do not need to set the INFA_TRUSTSTORE or INFA_TRUSTSTORE_PASSWORD environment variables.
You must set the INFA_TRUSTSTORE and INFA_TRUSTSTORE_PASSWORD environment variables on each client host in the following scenarios:
You use a custom SSL certificate to secure the domain.
If you provide an SSL certificate to use to secure the domain, copy the
infa_truststore.jks
and
infa_truststore.pem
truststore files to each client host. You must specify the location of the files and the truststore password.
You use the default Informatica SSL certificate, but the truststore files are not in the default Informatica directory.
If you use the default Informatica SSL certificate, but the
infa_truststore.jks
and
infa_truststore.pem
truststore files are not in the default Informatica directory, you must specify the location of the files and the truststore password.
