This article focuses on building a new SSL Termination policy to replace existing Factory SSL Termination policy found under System-->Settings-->System



Creating an SSL termination Policy

First you will need to use your own certs.  One you have the certs to use you can import these into Sentry under Resources-->PKI-->Keys

Creating an SSL Termination policy is done as follows:

  1. Go to Resources-->Security Policies-->SSL and click New
  2. Select Termination then click Next
  3. Name your policy and select the Key Pair to use
  4. Click on the link “Show cipher suites” and deselect DHE cipher suites then click Create
  5. Go to System-->Settings-->System and select the new SSL Termination policy then Save

You will now be using this SSL Termination policy when accessing the Web Admin.
