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
This is an old thread, but for anybody finding this info here are some references which contain details and guidance on working with mTLS authentication with the FlexNet inventory agent:
