Implement SSL on Assettrack Web Server
❗Be careful with temporary certificates
Customers often issue temporary SSL certificates from an internal source. This can cause problems connecting with mobile devices. While a desktop web browser may warn you about certificate misconfiguration, many Assettrack, HTTP calls will fail with messages that are difficult to isolate.
To implement SSL:
- Purchase an SSL certificate from a Certification Authority (CA)
- Generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from your web server to be SSL enabled
- Enroll for an SSL server certificate with the CA
- Install the SSL server certificate on your web server
Implement SSL On Mobile Devices
For your mobile device to make a secure connection with the web server, ensure that CA issued an SSL certificate, known to your mobile device. Certificates issued by well-known CAs like Verisign and Thawte are recognized by Windows Mobile out-of-the-box.
To know which CAs are recognized by your mobile devices, select Start Menu -> Settings -> Certificates on your mobile device
