Enabling Transport Layer Security (TLS) will encrypt the traffic between SCP and the Access It! server. By using TLS, there is no longer a need to send master keys to the SCP, nor manage the keys on the Server machine. The certificate that is loaded in the controller will be what is used to generate the session keys that are used for encryption. By default, all LP panels are configured to use TLS 1.2 if available.
TLS Version Support
TLS can be disabled on EP and EP-based controllers by toggling DIP switch 3 to the ON position. A power reset will need to be issued to the SCP.
