  • Question

  • Hi All

    Think these may be simple questions but wanted to double-check seince I couldnt find a DPM 2010 Security Guide doc.

    Firstly does anyone know the authenctication used? My understanding is that it is Kerberos.

    Does anyone know the encyption used for communication between the DPM Server and the Agent?

    Any help much appreciated.

  • Hi

    DPM uses a combination of kerberos, and dcom comminications.  There is no encryption done, if you need encryption, enable IPSEC.
