Adding Encryption to DataPages
If your DataPages are handling sensitive information you can apply SSL encryption to protect the data during transfer. This option is available on every DataPage, as well as on the logout link created through Web User Authentication.
Steps to add encryption to DataPage transfer:
1. Deploy your DataPage
In the Caspio Bridge Explorer window go to the DataPages section. Select the DataPage you would like to encrypt and press the Deploy button. Click on Enable External Access to this DataPage.
2. Change your security settings
The security settings for this DataPage are located after the deployment model settings and before the deploy code. To enable encryption choose the radio button for SSL. You can also click Block non-secure connections for added security. If you have previously deployed your DataPage you will need to replace the deploy code with this encrypted version.
Steps to add encryption to the logout data transfer:
1. Apply Web User Authentication
Set up Web User Authentication using either the express or the custom method. On the last page of the Authentication wizard you will see the Logout Link section. Click on Authenticated DataPages will be deployed with SSL encryption. Note the new logout URL. Remember this SSL applies only to the logout link. All of the related DataPages must have encryption applied separately.
2. Update your logout links
In the previous step you saw that your logout link URL changed slightly when you applied SSL. If you have logout links already implemented in your apps you will need to update the URL to use the “HTTPS” protocol.
