Identity and Access Management


Client systems communicate with the net daemon servants of the I2A2 data base managers (DBMs) via the TCP/IP protocol a six well-known ports. The ports have names and numbers that are published by the Purdue IT Telecommunications group in the services file.

Each DBM has two well-known ports: one for plain text connections; and a second for connections via the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

The plain text port can be used when no secret information passes between the client host and the DBM's daemon. When secret information must be exchanged, the SSL port must be used.


Here are the I2A2 entries of the IT Telecommunications services file:

Service NamePort NumberDescription
authc1561Plain text access to the authenticator DBM
authcs1562SSL access to the authenticator DBM
authz1563Plain text access to the authorizer DBM
authzs1564SSL access to the authorizer DBM
refl1565Plain text access to the reflector DBM
refls1566SSL access to the reflector DBM
