When you use the HTTP(S) protocol for data transfer, data is encrypted by default, that is, HTTPS is used.

You can deselect or select data encryption by setting the Disable SSL or Enable SSL option in the vCloud Connector node. Set this option in the destination node. The SSL status on the destination node determines whether data transfer to the node is encrypted or unencrypted. However, when you copy data between a private cloud and a public cloud, the SSL status on the public cloud node determines whether data transfer is encrypted or unencrypted.

SSL is enabled by default on vCloud Connector nodes.

The vCloud Connector node is configured to use HTTP(S) as the data transfer protocol. HTTP(S) is enabled whenever UDT is disabled.
