Using SSL With BI 4.1 & Desktop Intelligence Compatibility Pack ?


We are currently running BusinessObject XI 3.1 (FP7.1) using this configuration, we are using no encryption.

When we upgrade to BusinessObjects XI .41 we want to ensure users passwords are encrypted. We will be using the BI Launch Pad, Web Intelligence Rich Client & Desktop Intelligence via the Desktop Intelligence Compatibility Pack.

If I am correct we will need to configure the BI Launch Pad for HTTPS access on port 443. But I am confused about how we protect users passwords when logging into the Web Intelligence Rich Client & Desktop Intelligence/DCP. Does this require the Cobra SSL configuration, and do we need to run sslconfig on all machines running these applications ? This would involve 200 client machines in our case, which is pretty small compared to other organisations but still nearly impossible to do.

Can anyone advise ?




You do need to run sslconfig on EVERY machine running the client tools for SSL encryption.
