Configure HTTPS encryption for the user interface connection. By default, DGA monitor only allows encrypted connections to the user interface (HTTPS) using a self-signed certificate. Any connections that request unencrypted communication (HTTP) are redirected to the encrypted interface (HTTPS).

The default self-signed certificate is not trusted by connecting web browsers and will give a warning that the connection is not secure. To remove the notification, install a trusted TLS certificate (TLS 1.1 or 1.2) on the DGA monitor. However, note that HTTPS traffic is always encrypted even if the certificate is not trusted. Vaisala recommends using encrypted connections (HTTPS).
  1. Connect to the user interface as the Admin user.
  2. In the user interface, select Settings > Network > Security.
  3. Select HTTP to use unencrypted user interface connections, or HTTPS (default) to secure the interface using encryption.
  4. To use your own certificate with HTTPS connections:
    1. Select Upload certificate.
    2. Select Certificate file > Browse and locate the certificate file.
    3. Select Private key file > Browse and locate the private key file.
    4. Enter the Private key password if your private key requires it.
  5. Select Apply to save your changes.
    If you change the security settings, the user interface will restart and you have to log in again.
