To allow users to access private Web pages

About this task

When users fill out forms on the Web or pages from Internet servers to which users authenticate, the Web Navigator encrypts those pages with the user's public key and stores the pages in private folders in the Web Navigator database.

To ensure that the Web Navigator can encrypt these private pages, be sure that users' public keys exist in the Person documents in the Domino® Directory on the server. Domino® automatically adds the user's public key to the Person document when you register the user.
