Setting Up Secure Communications

To set up secure communications, you need the following:

The process you use to set up secure communications for an Enterprise Server instance is outlined below:

  1. Install the certificate and a private key file on the machine running Enterprise Server, and note the path.
  2. For the Enterprise Server instance to configure, create a secure listener and configure it to use the key file that you installed.
  3. Start the server and the listener, and configure the private key file's pass phrases.

    You can set the certificate and keyfile pass phrases either in a configuration file, or you can enter them manually whenever you start the server.

  4. On machines that use the listener, if required, configure the CA root certificate.

Steps 2, 3, and 4 are described in detail in this help.
