HTTPS for added security

By default REM runs over HTTP in the bundled Jetty web server. If additional security is required, there are a couple ways in which REM can be run over HTTPS.

Changing Jetty to Use HTTPS

An example configuration for HTTPS is provided in recent versions of REM. To enable this, open the start.ini file and uncomment the ssl and https modules:

-# --module=ssl
-# --module=https

You will also need to provide or create a proper web keystore (by default located at etc/keystore inside the main rhino-element-manager directory).

  • For more detailed instructions on creating a keystore and configuring HTTPS in Jetty, see Configuring Security in the Jetty documentation.

Running REM behind Apache

If you have an existing Apache installation that is already configured to use HTTPS, then you may wish to serve REM through that.

The setup can be a bit complicated on the Apache side and a couple different options are available.
