You can configure SafeLinx to use several different security mechanisms to protect network resources.
|Identifier in preceding figure||Description||Planning information||For configuration information, see|
|1||Transport Layer Security (TLS) connection between web browser and secure application server||Not applicable||Not applicable; automatically provided by web browser|
|2||Wireless optimized link protocol (WLP)||Based on PPP, but modified to support wireless and WAN communications, WLP
negotiates parameters for establishing, authenticating, securing, and optimizing VPN connections
between the SafeLinx Server and the SafeLinx Client.
