Security on Amazon EC2

Hi, we're estimating the security requirements of moving some of our build agents into the cloud. The documentation doesn't explicitly talk about this aspect; I would like to understand how agents communicate with the server and how to set up secure communication between the two.


Hello Simone,

Please refer to Server-Agent Data Transfers section in our documentation. If you need the connection between the server and the agent machine to be secure, you will need to setup the agent machine to establish a secure tunnel (e.g. VPN) to the server on boot so that TeamCity agent receives data via the secure channel.

Kind regards,


Hi Marina, thanks for the pointer, I totally missed that part of the docs.
