Two primary components are facilitate and manage secure communications between the other product components:

SQDutil Utility - Responsible for Public / Private Key Generation

Controller Daemons - Manage the initiation of connections between Publishers and Engines and Utility processing requests

The Capture, Publisher and Engine agents and the SQDMON and SQDUTIL utilities utilize the Public / Private key files to establish connections to the Controller Daemons which then authenticate those requests.

Precisely customers are increasingly concerned about their sensitive data. While the initial focus was on encryption of data when transiting the network they recognize that the security provided by encryption is only as secure as the associated encryption keys. Key management lifecycle services that support generation, storage, expiration and other factors will grow in popularity. Connect CDC SQData has introduced support for the Azure Key Vault (AKV) as an alternative for storage of the NaCL Private key file for Engine agents and utilities running on Linux (only).
