Unless you reconfigured the ActiveGate manually, there is https communication with TLS1.2 between ActiveGate and OneAgents.

also here:

ActiveGate authenticates OneAgent requests (SSL handshake and environment ID authentication).

And here:

Communication between OneAgents and ActiveGate takes place over an encrypted HTTPS channel. ActiveGate provides an authentication certificate to all connecting clients. While OneAgent instances may ignore the validity of ActiveGate certificates (depending on configuration), connections from browser clients (such as the RUM JavaScript tag) do verify that the hostname listed in the certificate is correct, before they send data.
