Non-FIPS mode

In non-FIPS mode, to be compatible with former Foglight versions, Foglight uses JRE TrustStore as the default TrustStore. The default TrustStore will NOT be preserved during Foglight upgrade. Foglight also support a separate TrustStore, which will be preserved during upgrade. Choose the one that best suits your needs:

Option 1: Import the certificate into the embedded JRE TrustStore, <foglight_home>/jre/lib/security/cacerts (default password: changeit), with the following command:
<foglight_home>/jre/bin/keytool -import -file <path_to_cert_file> -alias <alias_of_cert> -keystore <foglight_home>/jre/lib/security/cacerts -storepass <store_pwd>
Prepare TrustStore: copy <foglight_home>/config/security/trust.keystore.sample to <foglight_home>/config/security/trust.keystore
Import the certificate into the Foglight TrustStore, <foglight_home>/config/security/trust.keystore (default password: nitrogen), with the following command:

FIPS-compliant mode

In FIPS-compliant mode, it is required to use FIPS-validated KeyStore type BCFKS.

Import the certificate into the Foglight default TrustStore in FIPS-compliant mode, <foglight_home>/config/security/trust.fips.keystore (default password: nitrogen) with the following command:

Setting up an encrypted LDAP connection with SSL

Use the following instructions if you need to encrypt communication between the Management Server and the LDAP server.

Acquire the LDAP server certificate in .pem format from the administrator.
On the navigation panel, under Dashboards, click Administration > Users & Security > Directory Services Settings.

Using encryption when sending email from Foglight

You can use encryption when sending email from Foglight. To do so, you must enable Foglight to use the SSL protocol and configure the mail server used by Foglight to use an SSL certificate that is not self-signed.

You can configure Foglight to use the SSL protocol either on the Email Configuration Dashboard or by editing the related mail.use.ssl registry variable. See the Administration and Configuration Help for more information.

See the documentation for your mail server for information about configuring it to use an SSL certificate.
