|Generating Encryption Certificates|
Encryption Certificates are used by HTTP interfaces both when sending, and receiving, messages
|Certificate Name||The name of the certificate will appear in the Encryption section of the HTTP interface settings.|
|Certificate Description||Certificate description, included inside the certificate document|
|Seed File|| The seed file is used to set the random number generator. The seed file must be greater then 18K in size, located on the workstation that the HL7Connect service is running on. it is best to use a file that
contains sufficient entropy, as the file is compressed. Image files are are good candidate for use as a seed file.
Therefore, text files need to be very large (usually over 200K in size) while picture files such as JPEGs and GIFs can be between 8 and 100K in size.
NOTE: Several levels of randomisation with current time and date are used to generate each certificate, so even if you use the same seed file, you will not be able to recreate a certificate.
