To protect data transferred between the Lotus® Expeditor Server and clients, the HTTP server, the application server, and the Lotus Expeditor Client must be secure. Security is not enabled on your servers by default. This topic describes how to enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security on IBM® HTTP Server and WebSphere® Application Server. For more information or other implementations, see your HTTP server and WebSphere Application Server documentation.
The following topics describe how to enable SSL between the Lotus Expeditor Server client and server. After you enable security, Lotus Expeditor Server encrypts all requests, including logging in to the user management console. However, you must complete additional steps to configure the Client Management services and DB2® Everyplace® administration consoles to use SSL. To secure Lotus Expeditor Server, complete the steps in the following sections in the order listed.
