Transfer CFT provides a set of objects that you can use to manage your transfer security requirements.

  • Certificates to authenticate a remote party
  • TLS to secure a connection using the TLS protocol
  • Open SSL to generate a local authority certificate and user certificates
  • Non-Authentication mode to enable transfers between two Transfer CFTs to proceed using a non-authenticated transport security operating mode

You can work with certificates either via the GUI or command lines. All other security operations must be performed using command lines.

This section describes the functions and components that are used to perform security operations, and comprises a set of sub-sections that describe how to configure and manage the Transfer CFT security objects as well as use additional Axway products to offer security features.
