Start the Edge Encryption proxy

After an Edge Encryption proxy is installed and configured, you can start the proxy from the command line.

Before you begin

Before starting the encryption proxy, verify the following:
  • The Edge Encryption plugin is activated on the instance.
  • The edgeencryption.properties file on this machine has been configured.
  • If using an order preserving encryption type, the order preserving database is running.
Note: The first time you set up the edgeencryption.properties file or change properties, you may want not to set the password encryption property. After you have verified that everything is working, you can set the password encryption property, shut down the proxy, and then restart the proxy.
