Setting Up the Security Proxy

When you use the Security Proxy Server, data sent between the client session and the Security Proxy is TLS-encrypted, and the host is protected from direct user contact.

The Security Proxy is an add-on product that must be

  • installed on the desired server

  • activated so it can be managed by Management and Security Server

  • configured to trust Management and Security Server (using the Security Proxy Wizard)


The Security Proxy is automatically installed, activated, and configured when you install it along with Management and Security Server (using the automated installer).

If you choose to install it separately, continue with the steps in this section to install and activate the Security Proxy.

After you verify that the system and performance requirements are met, see Using the Security Proxy Server (in the MSS Administrator Guide) to configure the Security Proxy.
