Symptoms

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) provides a level of security and privacy for those wishing to conduct secure transactions over the Internet. Introduced to the Internet market by Netscape Communications, the SSL protocol protects HTTP transmissions over the Internet by adding a layer of encryption. This insures that your transactions are not subject to "sniffing" by a third party.

SSL provides visitors of your website with the confidence to communicate securely via an encrypted session. For companies wishing to conduct secure e-commerce, such as receiving credit card numbers or other sensitive information online, SSL is essential.

Resolution

To configure OBAS Provider's Control Center to use SSL for communications the following steps should be performed:

  1. generate Certificate Request in the Configuration Director - Miscellaneous Settings - SSL Setup- Certificate Request tab;
  2. get a valid SSL certificate in one of the following way:

    • getting from trusted external Certificate Authority;
    • generating self-signed SSL certificate and use it for some time;
  3. import an SSL certificate signed by the Certificate Authority;
  4. enable a SSL protocol for the OBAS Web Tools

Refer to Generating Certificate Request for more detail.

In case an SSL certificate provided by Certificate Authority should be used with Intermediate CA certificate you may use instructions from this article to install Intermediate CA certificate.
