The authentication and connection profile settings for SSH Tectia Client are made in the Connection Broker configuration, because the Connection Broker handles all cryptographic operations and authentication-related tasks for SSH Tectia Client. The Connection Broker is a component included in both SSH Tectia Client and SSH Tectia ConnectSecure.

The Connection Broker uses an XML-based configuration file ssh-broker-config.xml. The configuration file can be edited with an ASCII-text editor or an XML editor. For description of the configuration file, see ssh-broker-config(5).

On Windows, you can use also the SSH Tectia Configuration GUI to configure the Connection Broker settings. For instructions, see SSH Tectia Configuration Tool (Windows).
