If you wish to encrypt your RaptorXML+XBRL Server data transfers using the SSL protocol, you will need to:


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

Set up RaptorXML+XBRL Server for SSL communication.


The steps to do this are listed below.


This method 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
