14 Setting Up SSL Encryption
This section describes the procedure for setting up a secure connection via an https
web connection to the RSM-8R4.
Note: SSL parameters cannot be defined via the Web Browser Interface. In
order to set up SSL encryption, you must contact the RSM-8R4 via the Text
There are two different types of https security certificates: "Self Signed" certificates and
"Signed" certificates.
Self Signed certificates can be created by the RSM-8R4, without the need to go to an
outside service, and there is no need to set up your domain name server to recognize
the RSM-8R4. The principal disadvantage of Self Signed certificates, is that when you
access the RSM-8R4 command mode via the Web Browser Interface, the browser will
display a message which warns that the connection might be unsafe. Note however,
that even though this message is displayed, communication will still be encrypted, and
the message is merely a warning that the RSM-8R4 is not recognized and that you may
not be connecting to the site that you intended.
Signed certificates must be created via an outside security service (e.g., VeriSign®,
Thawte™, etc.) and then uploaded to the RSM-8R4 unit to verify the user's identity. In
order to use Signed certificates, you must contact an appropriate security service and
set up your domain name server to recognize the name that you will assign to the
RSM-8R4 unit (e.g., service.wti.com.) Once a signed certificate has been created and
uploaded to the RSM-8R4, you will then be able to access command mode without
seeing the warning message that is normally displayed for Self Signed certificate
