Edge Encryption installation

You can install an Edge Encryption proxy manually or using the Edge Encryption installer.

Installing Edge Encryption includes these steps.
  • Install the Edge Encryption proxy application on a server in your network.
  • Generate the RSA key pair for digitally signing encryption configurations and encryption rules.
  • Install the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE), if you plan to use AES 256 encryption.
  • If you are using a secure SSL connection, obtain a server certificate and import it to the Java KeyStore.
  • Set up your keystore and encryption key.
  • If order preserving encryption types or encryption patterns are to be used, set up a MySQL database on a machine in your network.
  • Set the desired properties. Properties are located in the configuration file.

Accessing the proxy server

Once installation is complete, point each user's browser to an Edge Encryption proxy using the URL format: <host>:<port>. Values are determined by the host and port properties in the file.

As an example with the following values:
Property Example value

Note: DNS settings and routing rules may be used. Host and port values are determined by your network administrator.
