Public Key Infrastructure
Tachyon features require a PKI and certificates on client devices and servers. Please see below for client requirements, and Tachyon 5.1 - Requirements: Certificates for server requirements.
If you have configured Tachyon Server to require client certificates, then each device requires a certificate with the following properties so the Tachyon client can be authenticated by the Tachyon Switch.
Client certificates must meet the following requirements:
The client device's certificate is stored differently depending on the type of OS.
If using a Microsoft Enterprise CA then the following should be considered.
If using a standalone CA, then certificates must be deployed by other means.
Tachyon integration with Nomad
Tachyon integration with Nomad allows Tachyon to make use of Nomad features for more efficient downloading of content from different sources including the Tachyon Background Channel. Using this feature needs the following settings enabled, you can do this during the 1E Client installation:
With the Nomad integration feature enabled, Tachyon client will detect if the Nomad module of 1E Client is enabled and automatically use it to download content from Tachyon Background Channel servers.
Tachyon's use of Nomad works irrespective of whether Nomad is integrated with Configuration Manager, or using ActiveEfficiency features.
Configuration Manager is not a prerequisite for Tachyon integration with Nomad, but you will need to consider the following:
Tachyon scripting requirements
Windows Tachyon clients can use PowerShell scripts. Ensure your Tachyon client devices have an appropriate version of PowerShell installed to support any custom scripts you may develop. See PowerShell on Windows OS.
Non-Windows Tachyon clients can use bash as their scripting medium. This should be present on all non-Windows Tachyon client devices.
