The security of the connection to the HBS is a matter of utmost priority. The system is therefore protected by means of transport encryption. It is necessary to create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) that you email to your onboarding manager at the end of step 1.4. You will receive the appropriate signed partner certificate and the Hubject Root CA Certificate, at the beginning of Phase 2.
The following graphic shows the steps to create the required Certificate to establish the Web Services connection between the Backend and the HBS.
- Please download the Secure Connection Guide for further instructions on how to produce the Certificate Signing Request (CSR).
- Create your CSR and double-check that the values provided match those provided in the Secure Connection Guide
- Save the CSR in a password-protected ZIP file
Having created the CSR, please continue with providing IT security information.
