This page is used to configure Crypt-o Web interface.

NOTE: Crypt-o Web interface can be accessed via a secure HTTPS connection only. A TLS certificate is needed in order the Web interface to work.
 
It is recommended to obtain a TLS certificate from a trusted certificate provider. Then assign this certificate to Crypt-o Web interface. In such case, Web browsers will be able to verify the certificate and provide safe access to Crypt-o.
 
Also it is possible to create and use a untrusted self-signed certificate for Crypt-o Web interface. But it is not recommended, because Web browsers will not be able to verify such certificates.

NOTE: Users can be restricted from accessing certain databases via Web interface using the Web access permission.

 

Enable Web interface - when this option is selected the Crypt-o Web interface will be available.
Web interface port - TCP port number for the Web interface.

NOTE: Enter the following URL in your browser to access Crypt-o: https://host.domain.com:24781
       host.domain.com - is a full DNS name of a computer, where Crypt-o Server is running.
       24781           - a Web interface port.

IMPORTANT: Do not use an IP address or short host name in a URL to access Crypt-o Web interface. Always use a full DNS name of the host, where Crypt-o Server is running.
Browsers do not store session cookies when an IP address or short host name is used in a URL. In such case, Crypt-o Web interface will direct you to the logon page, when any link is clicked.

Assign certificate... - use this button to assign an existing TLS certificate for Crypt-o Web interface. You can purchase an TLS certificate from many providers.

Create certificate... - use this button to create an untrusted self-signed certificate for Crypt-o Web interface.

 

The current state of Crypt-o Web interface is displayed in the Status box. You can start and stop Web interface using the corresponding buttons.
