Sun Java System Federation Manager 7.0 User's Guide

Enable SSL Access To Active Directory Server

Enables SSL access to the Directory Server specified in the Primary and Secondary Server and Port field. By default, the box is not checked and the SSL protocol will not be used to access the Directory Server.

If the Active Directory server is running with SSL enabled (LDAPS), you must make sure that Federation Manager is configured with proper SSL trusted certificates so that it may connect using LDAPS protocol.
