Security tab
The Security tab in the Progress OpenEdge AppServer, Progress OpenEdge WebSpeed, and Progress Application Server for OpenEdge sections of the Configurations wizard allows you to specify security parameters for the AppServer and WebSpeed instances used by the launch configuration. See Progress OpenEdge AppServer and WebSpeed settings for information about accessing the wizard.
You can use the Security tab to secure client connection properties. The following controls are available on the tab:
Name (accessible from all tabs)
(Required) Specifies the name of the launch configuration, which appears on menus and in the left pane of the Configurations wizard.
Enable SSL client connections
(Optional) Specifies that all connections to the broker must use SSL tunneling.
An SSL client encrypts data using a private key or a digital certificate, thereby making sure that both the debug client and the broker can authenticate each other’s identity.
If you are sending data to a remote database, you can ensure that communication between the two machines is secure.
Private key/digital certificate alias name
(Optional) The alias name within the OpenEdge keystore of the private key and digital certificate entry to be used to authenticate all connections to the broker. If this is not selected, the broker uses the default_server server certificate alias.
You must provide a unique alias for each certificate or private key.
Password to access the key/certificate
(Optional) The password to be used for accessing the private key and digital certificate.
Note: If you use the default_server server certificate, it also has a default password that you need not specify.
Disable SSL session caching
(Optional) Disables caching for the SSL client session.
SSL session cache timeout
(Optional) The duration, in seconds, that an SSL client session is held in the session cache, during which an SSL client can resume its session.
The default value is 180.
