5.15. Using HTTPS with Windows Event Forwarding and Supercharger

We will provide support on configuring the Supercharger IIS website to use HTTPS in terms of the local configuration of IIS. It is your responsibility to enroll the server with a valid server certificate and private key and import it. We do not provide support on PKI issues or certificate enrollment.

For #2 above there are many options to complete this. Configuring Supercharger to use HTTPS is the same as configuring HTTPS for any website. Your organization will have to determine which process meets its security requirements. Because of this, we do not provide a guide for setting up websites using HTTPS for every scenario as this is fully documented online from multiple resources. Below, though, are a few points to keep in mind. Here is a link to one scenario for "How To Setup Supercharger Web GUI for HTTPS".
