The Encryption tab contains the following information:

  • Encryption Level Available — The type of encryption installed on the server:
    • Standard — Standard security
    • Performance — BMC Remedy Encryption Performance Security
    • Premium — BMC Remedy Encryption Premium Security

      Note

      The available level of encryption is displayed in this field whether encryption is activated or not.

  • Active Encryption Settings — The server's current encryption configuration.
    Changes applied to the New Encryption Settings box do not appear in these read-only fields until the server is restarted.
  • New Encryption Settings — Fields in which you can change the server's encryption configuration.
    When you change these settings and click Apply, the changes are saved in the AR System server configuration file (ar.cfg on Windows; ar.conf on UNIX). They do not take effect or appear in the Active Encryption Settings box, however, until the server is restarted.
