The following tables describe the UI elements that are available on the feature page and in the Actions pane.

 

Element Name Description

Require SSL

Select Require SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to enable a 40–bit data encryption method that you can use to help secure transmissions between your server and clients. This option setting works in both intranet and internet environments.

Require 128 Bit SSL

Select Require 128 bit SSL to provide stronger encryption than the 40–bit version. You can use 128–bit SSL to help secure transmissions between your server and clients in either an intranet or internet environment.

Ignore

This option is the default. This setting does not accept client certificates if they are provided.

noteNote
This option does not require clients to verify their identity before gaining access to your content. Therefore, this option is the least secure of these settings.

Accept

Select this setting if you want to accept client certificates (if they are provided), and to verify client identity before allowing the client to gain access to content.

Require

Select this option to require that certificates verify client identity before allowing the client to gain access to content.
