Securing Attachments in IBM Maximo
Need help securing attachments in IBM Maximo?
So you have secured your IBM Maximo installation using SSL, perhaps by following one of the secure articles in our A3J Group blog library, and are feeling pretty comfortable that your IBM Maximo users are protected. Just as you are about ready to lean back in your chair and enjoy the fruits of your labor you receive an urgent communication with a screenshot showing an IBM Maximo attachment being served up with the unsecured HTTP rather than HTTPS. Sound familiar? Thankfully you will be back to your feeling of tranquility in no time as this fix is a piece of cake.
*Note you could have been prevented the above scenario from occurring by not binding IBM Maximo to an unsecure port. This would not have allowed the attachment to work but would have prevented an unsecure connection.
