Bluefin supports two methods of connectivity to the Decryptx service:
- Managed services
While the Internet has proven very reliable for decryption processing, those seeking guaranteed delivery to Bluefin’s Decryptx platform should consider a dedicated, managed service. Bluefin has partnered with Transaction Network Services (TNS) for clients requiring high transaction per second and low latency. Transactions over the managed service are sent via https. TNS offers numerous connectivity options. Additional information can be found here.
In Bluefin's recommended configuration, transport to Bluefin will be via diverse telecommunication providers. This guarantees both hardware and connectivity diversity for the Decryptx service.
Clients may also connect to Bluefin over the Internet via HTTPS. The Internet connectivity option is intended for the following types of clients:
- Clients who do not require a communications SLA since packet delivery over the Internet cannot be guaranteed.
- Clients who do not have the infrastructure to support dedicated hardware. For example, clients who use AWS or other "cloud" based infrastructure for their service delivery.
- Clients who are not sensitive to the inherent latency of the Internet.
Clients connecting to either the Decryptx certification or production environments must provide their source IP addresses to Bluefin. Client IP addresses must be whitelisted for connectivity to the Decryptx environment.
For maintenance and processing availability purposes, clients connecting over the Internet are REQUIRED to support DNS resolution for the processing URL https://secure-prod.decryptx.com/api
Decryptx clients processing over the Internet who wish to whitelist the Decryptx IP addresses in their firewalls should contact Bluefin Bluefin support for a list of IP addresses that should be included in their firewall's configuration.
