Configuring Sametime Community Server to use SSL encryption

Configure IBM® Sametime® Community Server to use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) for its services; and configure HTTPS when communicating with Web clients or enable LDAPS (LDAP over SSL) with the LDAP server.

About this task

You can encrypt communications for Sametime Services and the communication between Sametime and web browsers. You can also encrypt communications between an LDAP server and the Sametime server with the LDAPS protocol.

You can set up either, or both, of these protocols independently. If you are upgrading from a previous release, take steps to upgrade the GSKit and iKeyMan utility as described in the related topic.
