Http vs Https

Ajilius is supplied with a placeholder certificate for SSL encryption of traffic between your browser and the Ajilius application.

Because this is a placeholder, you may be prompted with a security alert that the certificate is invalid. This alert can be bypassed.

You can remove the alert by acquiring an SSL certificate, and creating a Java Keystore file named “ajilius.jks” in your ajilius/bin folder.

Alternatively, to remove the encryption during evaluation on a local machine, delete the file “ajilius.jks”. This will enable connections via HTTP rather than HTTPS.
