Hi Alex,

I would like to begin utilizing the RMA agent for some servers that are in various DMZ's within our environment. In the manual it states, "This is an additional measure that together with password protection and encryption of all communications between RMA Manager and an agent provides extra security." My question is what kind of encryption is being used? How strong? Internally developed or industry standard implementation, etc? It would help to be able to share this information with higher ups here when they are concerned with security.

Thanks again,
Mark

Hi Alex,

The last post on this subject was years ago, but is there any change since then in regard of encryption standard used? Why not AES?

Twofish works just fine.
We can add AES as option in future versions.

Regards
Alex
