Altova MobileTogether Server Advanced Edition

Set Up SSL Encryption

Home Prev Top Next

If you require that communications between your MobileTogether Server and MobileTogether Client devices are encrypted using the SSL protocol, you will need to:


Generate an SSL private key and create an SSL public key certificate file

Set up MobileTogether Server for SSL communication.


The steps to do this are listed below.


MobileTogether uses the open-source OpenSSL toolkit to manage SSL encryption. The steps listed below, therefore, need to be carried out on a computer on which OpenSSL is available. OpenSSL typically comes pre-installed on most Linux distributions and on macOS machines. It can also be installed on Windows computers. For download links to installer binaries, see the OpenSSL Wiki.



1.Generate a private key

2.Certificate Signing Requests (CSRs)

3.Buy an SSL certificate

4.Receive public key from CA

5.Save public key to file

6.Save CA's intermediate certificates to file

7.Combine certificates in one public key certificate file

8.Install SSL certificate on MobileTogether Server

9.Set the server's HTTPS port

10.Test SSL communication

11.Enable MobileTogether Clients to use SSL
