SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a cryptographic protocol that provide security and data integrity for communications over networks. This process uses two keys to encrypt data, a public key known to everyone and a private or secret key known only to the recipient of the message.

When enabled, SSL encrypts HTTP and TCP communication between all of the Automate BPA Server components.

From within the SMC (Server Management Console), navigate to:

SMC > Options > Server Settings > SSL
