Edge Encryption installation

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

Java requirements

The host machine installing or running the Edge Encryption proxy server must maintain a supported version of Java:
  • Java 8 update 121 (8u121)
  • Java 8 update 141 (8u141)
  • Java 8 update 151 (8u151) or higher
    Note: Java 8 update 131 (8u131) is not supported.
Important: Before installing the Edge Encryption proxy server, check that the $JAVA_HOME variable is pointing to a supported version of Java for each user that will run the proxy server. For example, if installing the proxy server as a local administrator on Windows, check that the $JAVA_HOME variable is pointing to the correct version of Java system-wide. If installing on Linux, check that each user that will run the proxy server has this variable correctly defined. If a supported version of Java is not found, the Edge Encryption proxy server will not run.

Installing the proxy server

Installing Edge Encryption includes these steps.
  • Install the Edge Encryption proxy application on a server in your network using the interactive installer or the manual installer.
  • 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
edgeencryption.proxy.http.port 8081
A client will access the proxy server using the following address:
Note: DNS settings and routing rules may be used. Host and port values are determined by your network administrator.
