Creating an SSL Security Profile in SAP Control CenterLocate this document in the navigation structure

Security profiles define the security characteristics of a client/server session. Assign a security profile to a listener, which is configured as a port that accepts client connection requests of various protocols. SAP Mobile Server uses multiple listeners. Clients that support the same characteristics can communicate to SAP Mobile Server via the same port defined in the listener.


Note A security profile can be used by one or more servers in a cluster, but cannot used by multiple clusters.


  1. In the left navigation pane, select Configuration
  2. In the right administration pane, select the General tab.
  3. From the menu bar, select SSL Configuration.
  4. In the Configure security profile table:
    1. Enter a name for the security profile.
    2. Select a certificate alias from the drop down list.
      This is the alias of a key entry in the keystore. Make sure the key password of this key entry is the same as the keystore password.
    3. Select a mutual SSL setting:
      • true the value of the securityCharacteristic  is ‘default_mutual’. The security profile authenticates both the client and the server, the client is also required to authenticate using a certificate; both the client and server will provide a digital certificate to be accepted or rejected by the other.
      • false the value of securityCharacteristic  is ‘default’. The security profile authenticates only the server, only the server must provide a certificate to be accepted or rejected by the client.
  5. Click Save.
  6. From the Components menu, assign the security profile to the desired management or communication ports.
