Security

port 8000 is SSL, port 8089 is not

I've set up our Splunk Web interface to use 3rd party signed certs. On a Nessus scan it's being found and is passing the scan ok. However the management port - 8089 continues to fail Nessus with a self-signed certificate.

Are there different settings or a different file in which to modify to secure the management port?

I've already read this but must have missed the answer;

Thanks,

Hi Bill,

You edit server.conf to communicate over the management port with SSL. Here's a link to a topic that provides an overview of how Splunk can be secured with SSL over the management port:

I hope this helps!
