Configuring Business Process Server : SSL security for Business Process Portal modules

SSL security for Business Process Portal modules

Business Process Server relies on the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to provide secure connections for Business Process Portal modules. SSL provides server authentication, data encryption, and message integrity. With SSL implemented on both client and server, your Internet communications are transmitted in encrypted form, so that information arrives unaltered at the specified server. Generally, Business Process Server allows dual types of connections across all its portal modules (Home, Management and Administration). For example, a user logs into Administration using HTTPS protocol, while another user logs in non-securely using HTTP protocol:
No adjustment is required on your part as switching between these two connection types is the user’s choice at the Web browser level. The default protocol is selected during Business Process Server installation, which forces the connection type for Business Process Server menu shortcuts only.
Business Process Server uses the SSL protocol as part of the Web server to enforce a high level of security in addition to the login and password security features in Business Process Portal modules.
