SEGGER's J-Link Remote Server Adds Encryption Capability

SEGGER?s J-Link is suitable for debugging in the home environment.

SEGGER's J-Link Remote Server is a way to debug remotely. Available in GUI or command line versions for Windows, macOS, and Linux, it is included in the J-Link Software and Documentation package that comes with every model J-Link or J-Trace. 

Developers can connect from home and use any tool that supports J-Link. According to the company, the J-Link operates exactly the same as if it were sitting right on the developer's desk. 

Paired with authenticated access to the J-Link Remote Server, and the encrypted communication tunnel between software and probe, remote access is another debug option for the J-Link. The authentication uses challenge-response methods to ensure the password is never visible on the wire. The end-to-end encryption of the debug stream ensures that the application can be securely transferred via wire.

The J-Link Remote Server can be used at no cost with any J-Link model, including base models with only USB interface.
