Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3X48-D30.


Configure HTTPS as the connection protocol used for the SRX Series connection to the ClearPass Policy Manager (CPPM) for user query requests. You identify the connection protocol as part of the configuration that identifies the CPPM webserver.

The integrated ClearPass authentication and enforcement user query function allows the SRX Series device to request from the CPPM user authentication and identity information for an individual when the SRX Series ClearPass authentication table does not contain that information.

The connect-method configuration is optional. If it is not configured, a default value of HTTPS is assumed.

Note: This configuration assumes that aruba-clearpass is specified as the authentication source.



Specifies use of the encrypted HTTPS protocol. (Mutually exclusive with HTTP.)


Configures the Web API daemon (webapi) to use the default HTTPS certificate.

For security reasons, the HTTPS default-certificate key size 2048.
