Those products are indeed used to make certificates, and you can make your own, but you are right that you probably want to get them from a well-known "trusted" source instead or people who access your site will receive messages that they may be untrusted. However, you need the additional encryption product also just to do SSL at all, even if you do not generate your own certificates. SSL and DCM both use the encruption product. SSL uses to encrypt and decrypt etc., whereas DCM uses it to create certificates. I think also things like Client Access Express's VPN options might use it, but I am not sure about that. I have implemented SSL with test certificates on the 400 which I built with DCM. We have not ordered a cetificate from the likes of Verisign yet, but will be doing so soon. To implement it on the 400 was actually very easy. I just followed the instructions in the manual- creating a certificate, and then turning on the SSL option in the HTTP server configuration. It seems to work fine, although I have not yet done thorough testing. Luther >Thanks for these links. I am still a little confused.
