Configuring SSL for IBM Content Search Services
The IBM Content Search Services server can communicate with the Content Platform Engine server on both secure and nonsecure channels. You can configure the IBM Content Search Services server to communicate over a secure connection by using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
SSL is a commonly used protocol that provides secure connections by letting applications that connect over a network authenticate their identity to each other. SSL also encrypts the data that is exchanged between the applications.
- Encrypt the data that is transmitted over the network
- Perform SSL server authentication
