Web-based Across Components with HTTPS
During the configuration of the Across Server, you can selected whether web-based components such as crossWeb and crossTerm Now are to be accessible via HTTP or via HTTPS.
When using HTTP, the data streams between the server or the web page and the clients are transmitted without encryption.
By installing and using an SSL (secure sockets layer; an encryption protocol for data transfer on the Internet) server certificate, you can encrypt the transmission of the data streams via HTTPS.
Before you import an SSL certificate, you must request it from a trusted certification authority. For a list of certificate authorities, refer e.g. to the IIS documentation of Microsoft. The certificate must be generated so that it matches the server name (FQDN - Fully Qualified Domain Name).
After receiving the certificate, you can install it. For information on this topic, please again refer to the IIS documentation.
Server certificates are digital IDs containing information about a web server and the organization responsible for the web content of the Server. With the help of a Server certificate, users can authenticate a Server, verify the validity of web contents, and establish a secure connection. The Server certificate also contains a public key that is used when establishing a secure connection between the Client and the Server.
Installation and use of Server certificates affects security-relevant areas and should therefore be performed by qualified persons only.
Subsequent Configuration with SSL Certificate
If you initially configured Across without SSL certificate but now would like to switch to a configuration with SSL certificate, you should get the assistance of our Across Services team.
For further information, please consult your contact at Across Systems GmbH.
General information on Across services is available at www.across.net/en/services/.
URLs of the Web-Based Across Components
The URLs of the web-based Across components depend on whether you configured Across with or without Across certificate. The following tables show the URLs after the configuration with SSL certificate. Replace "https" with "http" in case you configured Across without SSL certificate.
