Job Role and Responsibilities:

AppDefense encryption is adding capability to report cipher, key strength, certificate expiry etc related to TLS encryption used by datacenter apps that AppDefense guards. Most enterprises care to make sure such encryption follows company guidelines on the reported data. When the apps cannot be modified to follow the company policy ApPDefense will also offer a way to create a sidecar or proxy for the application to provide upgraded encryption that meets company policies. In doing so the AppDefense encryptor will not require modifications to application. It will utilize mutual TLS to verify identity of each end point and this identity of each server or client is presented thru a private key that must be stored in a TPM (trusted platform module). VSphere is coming up with virtual TPM (vTPM) in 6.7. The project will work with vTPM to store any private keys in AppDefense encryption proxy code and make them safer.
