Using TLS

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a mechanism for encrypting data sent or received over the network. Encrypting communication with TLS when using Remote UI reduces the risks of data eavesdropping and tampering during communication.
To use TLS encrypted communication for Remote UI, specify the key and certificate (server certificate) you want to use, and then enable TLS on Remote UI.
This section describes how to configure the settings using Remote UI from a computer.
On the operation panel, select [Menu] in the [Home] screen, and then select [Management Settings] to configure the settings. However, the operation panel can only be used to enable or disable TLS on Remote UI. [Remote UI]
Administrator privileges are required. The machine must be restarted to apply the settings.
