Mutual TLS Authentication (mTLS) supported by FNMS ?

I got a question from our Security Advisor on topic communication between FNMS Agent to Internet Facing beacon.

Does Flexera for FNMS support Mutual TLS Authentication (mTLS) ?

If not, if and when does Flexera plan to support this in the future.

 

Some info for people who want to read about mTLS on wiki:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_authentication

 

Mutual authentication or two-way authentication

This would function as an authentication feature, as requested in the past: https://community.flexera.com/t5/FlexNet-Manager-Forum/Agent-authenticating-with-Beacon-server/td-p/121997
