Secure Sockets Layer Encryption
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Encryption uses a server certificate to create a securely-shared session key between the server and the client browser for use in symmetrical encryption / decryption. You must have a server certificate installed before you can enable SSL encryption. For more information about enabling SSL encryption, see the Internet Information Services (IIS) documentation.
You can use SSL to secure data being transmitted to the Reporting console, the Web console, or between MCF Connectors.
