SecureAdmin improves the security of your storage system by making it very difficult for someone to intercept a storage system administrator's password over the network, because the password and all administrative communication are encrypted. SecureAdmin also provides a secure communication channel between a client and the storage system by using one or both of the following protocols—SSH and SSL.
SSH provides a secure remote shell and interactive network session. SecureAdmin supports SSH 1.x clients and SSH 2.0 clients.
SSL provides secure web access for FilerView and Data ONTAP APIs.
