In the modern world of communications with access to everything, servers need to verify the client's identity to prevent malicious clients from gaining access to read or change the server content. Clients need to be able to trust that the servers are set up properly to prevent malicious parties from accessing content and provide false content.
Download our new application note to learn how NETCONF and RESTCONF clients and servers can be set up to use X.509 certificates to identify themselves to each other and set up secure connections between them so that malicious components can’t get involved in these communications.

Being tied to a comfort zone has been something top of mind for me lately. We all have those areas that we are comfortable in whether it is something we are used to doing in a particular way or certain tools we use despite those tools being several years old.
I have been thinking lately about the common idiom “The proof is in the pudding”, this is to say that the real worth or success of something is determined by trying it out or testing it.
We are happy to announce the release of ConfD 7.4 with several exciting new features. This blog post highlights the most important enhancements, changes, and deprecations.
Traditionally, and by far the most popular choice, NETCONF uses SSH as a transport protocol and public/private key pairs for authenticating a new connection. RESTCONF is transported via TLS, i.e. HTTPS, and authenticated using a username and password within the encrypted HTTPS connection. There is an alternative: X.509 certificates.
