Tunnel resources in Digital Access

In Smart ID Digital Access component, you configure tunnel resource hosts for client-server applications that are not web enabled. An example of such an application is remote desktop. The tunnel allows any TCP/UDP traffic between the client and the server to be channeled over a protected SSL connection. A tunnel is an intermediary program acting as a blind relay between two connections. Once active, a tunnel is not considered a party to the HTTP communication, though the tunnel may have been initiated by an HTTP request. The tunnel ceases to exist when both ends of the relayed connections are closed.

Tunnel resources are collected into tunnel sets where each tunnel in the tunnel set points to a tunnel resource.

In order to make tunnel resources accessible to the user, you configure tunnel sets to include static and/or dynamic tunnels for the resources. When using tunnel resources, you can set your own security levels with access rules for specific client applications and servers. The Access Client in Digital Access is used for users to access tunnel resources.
