Secure peering

Premium (Enterprise) Edition appliance can be installed at the data center and can initiate auto or manual secure peering, create SSL profile and associate service class, and join the appliance to a Windows Domain Controller for allowing users/administrator to use extended rich feature of standalone WANOP appliance.

Following are the deployment modes supported for Auto Secure Peering and Manual Secure Peering:

Auto Secure Peering deployments:

To perform auto secure peering to a PE appliance from a standalone WANOP / SDWAN SE/WANOP on the DC site.

Steps to initiate this deployment:

  • WANOP DC appliance is in LISTEN ON mode (2312/Any non-standard port) and Branch PE is in CONNECT-TO mode.
  • WANOP DC initiates automatic secure peering to a PE appliance which installs the Private CA Certs and CERT KEY Pairs and configure CONNECT-TO on the PE appliance with WANOPs LISTEN-ON IP.

To perform Auto-secure peering initiated from PE appliance at DC site and Branch site PE appliance.

Steps to initiate this deployment:

  • PE DC appliance is in LISTEN ON mode (on port 443). Branch PE is in CONNECT-TO mode.
  • PE DC appliance initiates automatic secure peering to a PE Branch appliance which installs the Private CA Certs and CERT KEY Pairs and configures CONNECT-TO on the PE Branch appliance with DC PE’s LISTEN-ON IP.
  • LISTEN-ON IP for PE is in the interface IP associated to the routing domain for which “Redirect to WANOP” is enabled.

Auto Secure Peering initiated from PE Appliance at DC site and Branch with WANOP/ SDWAN SE appliance.

Steps to initiate this deployment:

  • PE DC appliance is in LISTEN ON mode (on port 443). Branch WANOP / SD-WAN SE is in CONNECT-TO mode.
  • PE DC appliance initiates automatic secure peering to Branch WANOP / SD-WAN SE appliance which installs the Private CA Certs and CERT KEY Pairs and configures CONNECT-TO on the PE appliance with DC PE’s LISTEN-ON IP.

Manual Secure Peering deployments:

Manual Secure Peering initiated from PE appliance at DC site to Branch PE Appliance.

Steps to initiate this deployment:

  • PE DC appliance is in LISTEN ON mode (on port 443). Branch PE is in CONNECT-TO mode.
  • LISTEN-ON IP for PE is in the interface IP associated to the routing domain for which “Redirect to WANOP” is enabled.
  • Manually upload CA and Cert Key pair certificates obtained from authentic source of certificate authority.

Manual Secure Peering initiated from PE appliance at DC site to Branch WANOP/SDWAN-SE Appliance.

Steps to initiate this deployment:

  • PE DC appliance is in LISTEN ON mode (on port 443). Branch WANOP / SD-WAN SE is in CONNECT-TO mode.
  • LISTEN-ON IP for PE is in the interface IP associated to the routing domain for which “Redirect to WANOP” is enabled
  • Manually upload CA and Cert Key pair certificates obtained from authentic source of certificate authority.
