Mutual Certificate Authentication

Caliber Author and all other Caliber components support Mutual Authentication when the server is in Mutual Authentication mode. You can not use Mutual Authentication and Server Authentication at the same time. If mutual authentication is enabled, when users launch Caliber Author or any Caliber component, the component will look for a trusted server certificate and the server will look for the component trusted certificate.

To enable mutual authentication, you must:
  • Enable mutual authentication on the server.
  • Enable mutual authentication on Author and components.
  • Enable certificate authentication in Document Factory if using this feature.
