Registering Security Services


Use the Register Security Service page in Security Director to register a Juniper security service on a specific NSX Manager. After registering the security service from Security Director, log in to the vCenter server and deploy the service from NSX.

To register the Juniper security service:

  1. Select Devices > NSX Managers.

    The NSX Managers page appears.

  2. Select the NSX Manager for which service needs to be registered.
  3. From the More list or right-click menu, select Register Security Service.

    The Register Security Service page appears.

  4. Complete the configuration by using the guidelines in Table 1.
  5. Click Register to complete the registration.

    A confirmation message appears to indicate if registration is successful or not.

Table 1: Fields on the Register Security Service Page



Service Name

Enter the name for the Juniper Security Service.


The vSRX OVF image that you have copied to the Policy Enforcer VM is listed here. Select the vSRX OVF image from the list.

vSRX Root Password

Enter the root password of the vSRX instance.

The same root password is set for all the vSRX VMs deployed in NSX.

Confirm Password

Enter the root password of the vSRX instance for confirmation.

Firewall Type

Select East-West or North-South from the list. The default firewall type is East-West.

East-West—vSRX is spawned in each ESX server of VMware NSX-T for the east-west traffic. This provides east-west security for members of the security groups within a datacenter.

North-South—It is the perimeter firewall for the north-south traffic. This provides a consistent north-south security for members of the security groups, if the members move across datacenters.

Note: The Firewall Type field is applicable only if the NSX Manager type is NSX-T.
