To configure appliance security:

  2. Under Appliance, to enable security hardening features for high-security environments, toggle the High Security (STIG) Environment button to On.
  3. Under Web Server, to configure security and policy settings, specify the HTTPS or HTTP port, SSL protocols, and SSL cipher values, as required. See the Web Server entry in Security Settings.
