SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)is a standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a server and a client. Serving over SSL, allows sensitive data, such as login credentials, to be transmitted securely. By default, information is sent in plain text.
How to Enable SSL
1. In order for Localist to enable SSL for your platform, we will need to know what custom domain you will be using. However, the domain does not need to be set up through your registrar or placed in your calendar settings.
2. Localist will provide the CSR (certificate signing request)and it will need to be submitted to your certificate authority.
- Format :apache2 + mod_ssl/ .pem
3. After signing, send the certificate back to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will configure it on our end. Note: When serving your calendar over SSL, make sure that your wrapper only references secure links.
