Configuring SSL/TLS between OpsCenter and the DataStax Agents 

OpsCenter uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to encrypt the communication protocol and authenticate traffic between DataStax agents and the main OpsCenter daemon. SSL is disabled by default. Enabling SSL is strongly recommended.

OpsCenter uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to encrypt the communication protocol and authenticate traffic between DataStax agents and the main OpsCenter daemon. By default, SSL is disabled. Running OpsCenter without SSL should only be done when running OpsCenter and DataStax Enterprise under the following conditions:

  • On a secure internal network.
  • In a development environment where agents and OpsCenter run on the same computer free from network threats.
  • In a situation where you are not concerned about someone listening to OpsCenter traffic.

Otherwise, you should enable SSL.
