BEEP Connection Between Devices Running Junos OS and the SAE
For information about which devices running Junos OS and releases a particular SRC release supports, see the SRC Release Notes.
The SAE interacts with a Junos OS process, referred to as the SRC software process in this documentation, on the devices running Junos OS. The SAE and the SRC software process communicate using the Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol (BEEP). You can secure the BEEP connection by using Transport Layer Security (TLS).
When the SRC software process establishes a BEEP session for the SAE, the SAE configures an interface on the devices running Junos OS. The SAE builds the configuration for an interface using the policies stored in the directory. If the policies are subsequently modified, the SAE builds a new configuration and reconfigures the interface on the devices running Junos OS. The device running Junos OS stores data about interfaces and services that the SAE manages in a configuration group called sdx. You must create this configuration group on the device running Junos OS.
