How smartconsole secure connection?

Hello experts,

I listened from some one that Smart console creates an SSL tunnel with the Security gateway when we connect it to the gateway. But I am not able to find any document or article stating that.

Could any one help me in understanding how smart console (Dashboard) secure the traffic between the Smart console client and the Checkpoint management server?

I will really appreciate any comment.
