The Secomea data collection solution is a edge gateway solution. Collecting directly from end-devices as PLC's or other devices capable of presenting data, via industrial protocols like Modbus or OPC UA.

In the Config file's DataServer section the certificates, private key and connection strings stored in the Certificates storage is linked by the names they are stored under.
