Supported Junos XML protocol Access Protocols

The Junos Scope software uses SSL and clear-text Junos XML protocol access protocols (see Table 6), which also specify the associated authentication mechanism.

The SSL protocol is preferred because it encrypts security information (such as a password) before transmitting it across the network. The clear-text protocol does not encrypt security information.
