Using Client-Side Certificates

Note: This topic applies to the Edinburgh Release.

As well as utilizing NTLM authentication to authenticate users, you can use client-side certificates to ensure only approved devices have access to web filter policies. This has the advantage of providing an additional layer of security.

The same certificate is used by all devices. You must download the client certificate from the Smoothwall System licensed for Secure Global Proxy, and install them on the relevant devices.
