Configure and Enable SSL for the Management Console

You can use secure HTTP for your console.To run your console over Secure HTTP:

Install nginx on your console server with the following command: yum install nginx Overwrite the default nginx.conf file with the template provided in /usr/share/doc/eucaconsole-/nginx.conf. cp /usr/share/doc/eucaconsole-/nginx.conf /etc/nginx/nginx.conf Uncomment the ‘listen’ directive and uncomment/modify the SSL certificate paths in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf (search for “SSL configuration”). For example:

# SSL configuration
listen 443 ssl;
# ssl_certificate /path/to/ssl/pem_file;
ssl_certificate /etc/eucaconsole/console.crt;
# ssl_certificate_key /path/to/ssl/certificate_key;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/eucaconsole/console.key;
# end of SSL configuration

For more information on generating self-signed SSL certificates, go to .

Restart nginx using the following command: systemctl restart nginx.service Edit the /etc/eucaconsole/console.ini file, locate the = false parameter, change false to true , then add the sslcert and sslkey lines immediately following, per this example: = true
