Configuring an SSL Connection for IAST

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private and integral. To be able to create an SSL connection the web server requires an SSL Certificate. To secure client communications to IAST you can install a signed certificate and configure IAST to enforce SSL security (HTTPS).

Prior to IAST v3.3.3, the IAST SSL Tool was provided for configuring SSL on your IAST Server. As of IAST v3.3.3, the IAST SSL Tool is no longer needed. Instead, during the IAST installation you are asked to provide certain SSL parameters and the SSL connection is configured automatically.
