Enabling secure communications in memoQ server
You can configure the memoQ server to use a TLS encrypted communications channel, to ensure the security of the data transmitted between the server and memoQ clients. If you are using memoQ 2015 or higher with memoQ server 2015 or higher you have the choice either to use TLS or HTTPS to encrypt data transferred.
To use TLS or HTTPS you need to obtain an X.509 certificate from a certification authority. You can either purchase a certificate from a public certification provider, or, if you have an internal certification authority, you can issue a certificate using your internal certification authority, as long as all the Windows client operating systems running memoQ 2015 clients trust that certificate. For more information on obtaining a certificate, please refer to the document of either your public certification provider, or your internal certification authority. The Enhanced Key Usage section of the issued certificate has to contain:
- Server Authentication (188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1)
memoQ server 2015 and higher
For memoQ server 2015 and higher use the memoQ Server Deployment Tool to configure the server to use TLS (Secure TCP) or HTTPS based encryption: click Advanced…/Configure server, and then go to the Network connections page of the „Configure server” dialog. Select the communication protocol you would like to use here. If you chose Secure TCP (which is for TLS) or HTTPS, you also need to select the certificate to be used by the protocol.
