SSL Connectivity to Central for All

$10 Donation Helps Ensure the Integrity of Your Components

We know how components from the Central Repository have become critical to your development efforts. We also know that you need to trust those components. Part of that trust is knowing that hackers don't have visibility into the components you download or that they compromise components using a man-in-the middle attack.

SSL is now the default connectivity option for Nexus Pro users. But we aren't stopping there, we've made SSL connectivity to Central available to you even if you aren't using Nexus Pro. Nexus OSS is supported and we worked with JFrog Artifactory and Apache Archiva to enable SSL for those repositories.

SSL support for Nexus Pro customers is available in the latest release.

If you are using another repository manager you can get SSL support by providing a $10 donation. Sonatype will give all donations to the Apache Software Foundation or open source foundations like Eclipse.

Once you sign up for SSL support, we'll process your order within 1 working day - you'll receive a confirmation email with tokens necessary to enable support. Click here to get SSL support.
