Applying encryption methods

You can set SMART Response CE software to use SSL or Diffie-Hellman encryption. SSL encryption allows other programs to access SMART Response CE software. Diffie-Hellman encryption (the default method) doesn’t allow other programs to access SMART Response CE software.


  • The system administrator can override this setting.

  • You must put SMART Response software in SMART Notebook SE software mode or Multiple devices mode to configure the encryption method.
