Chapter 24. Configuring Secure Socket Layer SSL
Available in Nexus Repository OSS and Nexus Repository Pro
Using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) communication with the repository manager is an important security feature and a
recommended best practice. Secure communication can be inbound or outbound.
Outbound client communication may include integration with
a remote proxy repository over HTTPS,
SSL/TLS secured servers (e.g. for SMTP/email integration)
LDAP servers configured to use LDAPS
specialized authentication realms such as the Crowd realm.
Inbound client communication includes
web browser HTTPS access to the user interface
tool access to repository content
and manual or scripted usage of the REST APIs.
