The Summary View
Understanding the Summary View
The Summary View provides the administrator with a one page overview of the server’s configuration and any potential security issues that may be present.
The server scans the current Cerberus configuration at startup, and every time a configuration change is made, to look for any potential security issues that might result from the current system configuration. System warnings and messages are displayed in the System Messages list and each protocol type is given an overall security status indicator.
The possible status for each protocol type are:
- Secure – All listeners currently active for this protocol type are configured to accept only encrypted connections.
- Not Secure – Some or all listeners currently active for this protocol type are configured to allow unencrypted connections.
- Disabled – There are no listeners currently active on the server for this protocol.
Common System Messages
There are generally two types of system messages displayed in the System Messages list – general messages and security messages.
Anytime a protocol is listed as Not Secure there will be a system security message detailing the reason. Common system messages, their explanation and resolution, if applicable, are detailed below.
