If enabled, the scanner uses SSL through IIS for secure communications. Enable this option if CyberArk is configured to support SSL through IIS.
Verify SSL Certificate
If enabled, the scanner validates the SSL certificate. Enable this option if CyberArk is configured to support SSL through IIS and you want to validate the certificate.
Caution: Tenable strongly recommends encrypting communication between your on-site scanner and the CyberArk AIM gateway using HTTPS and/or client certificates. For information on securing the connection, refer to the Tenable Vulnerability Management User Guide and the Central Credential Provider Implementation Guide located at cyberark.com (login required).
