What is the significance of CA PAM windows proxy and how it works?
From the CA PAM Credential Management Implementation Guide (version 2.6):
. The Windows Proxy connector and the Windows Domain Services connector both
manage Windows accounts. Use the Windows Proxy connector to manage Active Directory and
Local Windows accounts, as well as the passwords for local Windows services and scheduled tasks.
This connector uses Windows APIs to make updates to the account, services and scheduled tasks
passwords. The connector can optionally query one or more DNS servers to find domain controllers.
The Windows Proxy connector uses HTTPS and AES encryption for secure communications.
You find a lot more information on the Windows Proxy in this guide. There is a separate guide, CA PAM Peripheral Implementation Guide, that contains install instructions.
