Universal Messaging supports ssl encryption by providing 2 ssl enabled protocols. These protocols enable clients to connect to a Universal Messaging Realm Server running a specific protocol on a port using all or specific physical network interfaces.
Defining an ssl enabled interface ensures that clients wishing to connect to a Realm Server can do so only after presenting the correct SSL credentials and authenticating with the server.
SSL authentication occurs within the Universal Messaging handshake which uses the JVMs JSSE provider. This ensures that any unauthorised connections are SSL authenticated prior to any Universal Messaging specific operations can be performed.
Creating an ssl enabled interface is the same as creating a non-ssl interface (see Creating Interfaces
) except there are a number of ssl related attributes in addition to the basic attributes (see Interface Configuration
For information on how to create an ssl interface (see Creating an SSL network interface to a Universal Messaging Realm
) using the Universal Messaging enterprise manager, please see the Universal Messaging FAQ.
