EP TLS 1.2 Encryption


Overview

Enabling Transport Layer Security (TLS) will encrypt the traffic between SCP and the Access It! Universal server. By using TLS, there is no longer a need to send master keys to the SCP, nor manage the keys on the Server machine. The certificate that is loaded in the controller will be what is used to generate the session keys that are used for encryption.
