Security Services provides Management & Control Services (MCS) with a secure port that implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0 and Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 support. Security Services also provides a proxy service, which redirects connections from secure clients outside the firewall to unsecured hosts inside the firewall.
Security Services, either with MCS or an MCS-managed server, is enabled by default. However, a secure (HTTPS) connection to the MCS console is required only if you select Require Encryption on the Authentication page.
You can use MCS to change Security Services settings as needed using the procedures below. In addition to the configuration options that you can change from MCS, you can edit several options in the SecurityGateway.properties file. For example, you can filter client access to authorized hosts only. For instructions, see Modifying the SecurityGateway.properties File.
|Before putting MCS into an SSL production environment, you must obtain and install a server site certificate. For instructions, see the procedure for obtaining and installing a server site certificate.|
