Enables ACS to use the secure socket layer (SSL) protocol to encrypt HTTP traffic between the CSAdmin service and the web browser that accesses the web interface. This option enables encryption of all HTTP traffic between the browser and ACS, as reflected by the URLs, that begin with HTTPS. Most browsers include an indicator for SSL-encrypted connections.
To enable SSL, first install an a server certificate and a certification authority certificate. Choose System Configuration > ACS Certificate Setup to access the installation process. With SSL enabled, ACS begins using HTTPS at the next administrator login. Current administrator sessions are unaffected. In the absence of a certificate, ACS displays an error.
