Enabling Mutual Authentication on the Server

Caliber Author and all other Caliber components support mutual authentication when the server is in Mutual Authentication mode. By default, Caliber installs a server trusted certificate in C:\ProgramData\trustpoints.

The certificate location is configured through a registry key called TrustpointsRepository located: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Borland\CaliberRM\11.5\Client\TrustpointsRepository (64-bit OS) or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\CaliberRM\11.5\Client\ TrustpointsRepository (32-bit OS)

Note: Micro Focus recommends that you to use your own certificate for the server and the client.

To enable mutual authentication:

  1. On the machine where the Caliber server is installed, select Start > Settings > Control Panel .
  2. Click on the Caliber Server icon. The Server Settings window appears.
  3. Click Global Properties tab.
  4. Check Client and Server.
  5. Close the Caliber Server Settings.
  6. Restart the Data Server.
  7. Copy custom server certificate to each client machine. The default directory is C:\ProgramData\trustpoints. If you want to change it, navigate to the registry key and configure it to point to the directory where the certificate resides.
