Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

In order to use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) together with WebOffice 10.8 SP2 have a look on the four supported cases described below. Other scenarios can occur though they are not explicitly supported.

SSL supported scenarios in WebOffice

 

Supported Scenarios (Description of the system sketch):

Case 1: The reverse proxy in the intranet will assign every external HTTPS map request to HTTPS (SSL for sensitive content, registration details) and HTTP (no SSL for non-sensitive content). Notice the information about configurations of Apache Reverse Proxy and URL for a secure Connection.

Case 2: External request via the external server name without reverse proxy (HTTPS for sensitive content, HTTP for non-sensitive content), pay attention to URL for a secure Connection.

Case 3: Internal request via the internal server name (HTTPS for sensitive content, HTTP for non-sensitive content), pay attention to URL for a secure Connection.

Case 4: The application is linked to the AD (Active Directory) using LDAP (lightweight directory access protocol), pay attention to Truststore.

 

Suggestion:

Also in case of external requests only encode the login requests (URL for a secure Connection). Remaining traffic will use HTTP.

An exception regarding SSL in the intranet is the configuration of a Authentication Type SSO. For detailed information see LDAP Configuration and Truststore.
