HTTPS connections are secure connections between a browser and the Viewpoint server. To enable HTTPS connections, the Viewpoint server needs a certificate so that browsers can verify that passwords or other sensitive information is not intercepted or sent to an untrusted source. Starting with Viewpoint 16.20.00.03, a self-signed HTTPS certificate is created if a certificate does not exist.

After a certificate is installed, HTTPS connections immediately start using the new certificate and no restart of the Viewpoint server is required.
