SharePoint with Dedicated SSL - Setup Guide




About SSL certificates


Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol that is used to transmit private documents through the Internet. SSL creates a secure connection between a client and a server over which any amount of data can be sent securely. SSL works by using a private key, known to the client browser to encrypt data transferred over the SSL connection. This encrypted data is then decrypted by the private key present on the Web server, where the SSL certificate is installed. The addresses (URLs) of Web pages that require an SSL connection start with https rather than the conventional http.

If your site stores sensitive data, such as customer profiles or if you are using your site for e-commerce, you should secure your site. To secure a site, you need to obtain a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate from a Certificate Authority.

Assigning an SSL certificate to a Windows SharePoint resource includes the following tasks:


  • Generating an SSL certificate request

  • Sending the certificate request to a Certificate Authority and obtaining the certificate

  • Installing the certificate on the Windows SharePoint resource

  • Assigning the certificate to the Windows SharePoint resource

To perform the following steps you will need to login to the Admin Control Panel at https://admin.exchange.telus.com with your administrator password.



NOTE: For this SSL Management functions to work correctly you must change your dashboard view to “Classic” in the control panel.

  1. Go to the SSL management page.

On the home page, in the SharePoint section towards the bottom of the page, click ssl management.
