The SBM Application Engine Web Services API supports the use of https to connect from the client. Use of SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is recommended for any customers connecting to their Web services server in a non-secure environment. Using SSL prevents credentials from being extracted from the messages that are sent. IIS should be configured to allow or require SSL to connect to the Web services.
For information on setting up SSL, see the IIS documentation.
SBM supports the following authentication types:
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)
SBM Internal Passwords authentication
