Secure Socket Layer SSL in Nexus Repository 2

Nexus Repository 2

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

  • manual or scripted usage of the REST APIs
