|Issue||How to enable SSL on an RSA NetWitness NextGen appliance.|
There are several essential steps to the process. Please be warned that this may have a significant performance impact. (See the note below)
After following the steps above, SSL will be successfully enabled on the appliance.
If you are unsure of any of the steps above or experience any issues, contact RSA Support and quote this article ID for further assistance.
|Notes||Note (versions prior to 188.8.131.52): |
Encrypting traffic between appliances (as opposed to encrypting management between appliances and NetWitness Administrator and/or NetWitness Investigator) will place a heavy, sustained load on the system above and beyond any load it is currently experiencing. This is not recommended unless you have adequately mapped performance/impact beforehand. SSL performance has been markedly improved in NextGen 184.108.40.206, though there will still be some performance impact.
To enable SSL on an RSA Security Analytics appliance, refer to the knowledgebase article How to enable SSL communications in RSA Security Analytics.
