SSL-Enabling the eG SuperManager on Windows Environments
The eG SuperManager on Windows includes a default SSL certificate. If you SSL-enable the eG SuperManager using this default certificate, then all you need to do is click the Yes button when the eG SuperManager setup process requests you to indicate whether the manager is to be SSL-enabled or not. Doing so will instantly enable the eG manager to communicate with the eG SuperManager via HTTPS and vice versa.
However, if you choose not to use the default certificate, then, you have the following options:
- You can obtain a signed certificate from an internal certifying authority (e.g., Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services) and use this certificate to SSL-enable the eG SuperManager, (OR)
- You can obtain a signed certificate from a valid, external certifying authority (e.g., Verisign) and use this certificate to SSL-enable the eG SuperManager
If you go with option (a), use the procedure detailed in SSL-Enabling the eG Manager Using a Certificate Signed by Internal CA section of the eG Installation Guide.
If you pick option (b), use the procedure detailed in SSL-Enabling the eG Manager Using a Signed Certificate Obtained from a Valid Certifying Authority section of the eG Installation Guide.
