The use of SSL certificates ensures that all HTTP communication with WebTitan Cloud GUI is encrypted. WebTitan Cloud allows you to use one of the following:
- Trusted certificates from a trusted certificate signing authority.
- Private, self-signed certificates.
The private certificates provide the same security as certificates purchased from a certificate authority. However, the web browser is unable to verify the authenticity of the private certificate so a warning message is displayed to the user informing the user about the unverified certificate.
To avoid the warning message and any issue with the private, self-signed certificate, you can purchase a trusted certificate from a trusted certificate signing authority. The trusted certificates are identifiable by all browsers, and users are not presented with the warning message.
All loaded certificates, including self-signed certificates, are listed in the table in the Installed Signed Certificates section.
To view one of the installed certificates listed in the Installed Signed Certificates section, click in Options.
To delete an installed certificate, click in Options.
You select which certificate to use for HTTPS connections in the Access tabbed section.
