Enabling SSL Communication

Caliber Visualize supports SSL communication. To enable SSL communication, you must obtain a digital certificate that uses a trusted certificate authority (CA) as the root certificate authority.
Note: For more information, refer to the Apache Tomcat SSL configuration documentation: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.0-doc/ssl-howto.html
To test Caliber Visualize's SSL support, you can use the untrusted (CA) that is installed with Caliber Visualize.
Note: You must use FireFox to test Caliber Visualize's untrusted (CA).
