Configure Encryption as a Service (EaaS) Certificate

MVISION Cloud provides Encryption as a Service (EaaS) Certificates to encrypt data for cloud services. This ensures only the intended recipient can decrypt and read the information. This certification configuration uses the proxy to authenticate EaaS end clients. Using this configuration, data is encrypted and decrypted using REST endpoints.

To configure the EaaS Certificate:

  1. Go to Settings > Service Management.
  2. Choose any Service and add an instance to manage an EaaS certificate. To add a Service instance, see Add an Instance of a Service.
  3. Select your Service instance from the Services list. For example, the Salesforce instance is selected.
