Enabling SSL for Caliber Review

By default, SSL is disabled. 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.

If you use the untrusted certificate that is installed with Caliber Review, you will have to accept the untrusted certificate in your Web browser.

To enable SSL: .

  1. Stop the Caliber Review Service.
  2. Edit server.xml located in <install directory>/conf.
  3. Comment the following section:
     <Connector connectionTimeout="20000"
    port="11012" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
    redirectPort="11082"/>
  4. Uncomment the following section:
    <Connector port="11082" minSpareThreads="5" maxSpareThreads="75" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol" enableLookups="true" disableUploadTimeout="true" acceptCount="100" maxThreads="200" scheme="https" secure="true" SSLEnabled="true" keystoreFile="conf/CaliberReview.keystore" keystorePass="caliber" clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS"/>
    
    
  5. Save the changes.
  6. Restart the Caliber Review Service.
  7. In your browser, navigate to the secure IP address or URL provided for your workspace.
    1. Type https to indicate the hypertext transfer protocol for secure access.
    2. Type 11082 for the port number.

    For example, a secure access URL looks like https://localhost:11082/caliberreview.

    If using the Micro Focus certificate or another untrusted certificate, a page appears and displays a message indicating the certificate is untrusted. If you are using a trusted certificate, no warning page appears and you are taken directly to the Log On page.

  8. Accept the page to acknowledge the risk of an untrusted certificate and proceed to the Log On page.
