We have enhanced the security measures within Replicator to ensure the safety of your content.
As changes are made in SharePoint, Replicator captures these as events and extracts the changes into Replication Packages. These packages are stored on disk as zip files that contain proprietary wrappers that further protect the SharePoint changes from being read.
Farm administrators can specify passwords that will be used to encrypt these packages, ensuring another layer of security. The encrypted zip files are stored in the Replicator Data Folders, transferred to target servers, and then decrypted and applied on the target web applications.
Replicator now offers users the ability to secure their connections through the use of a passphrase, set at the Web Application level, and applied for security settings at the Connection level.� This passphrase is a requirement when creating a firewalled connection. It confirms that the farm administrator creating the connection is authorized by a farm administrator on the other farm.
