Introduction Overview Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is an effective method of protecting data which is sent over a local or wide area network. It works by encrypting data sent over a network, i.e. a print job, so anyone trying to capture it will not be able to read it as all the data will be encrypted.
Introduction Using Certificates for device security Your Brother machine supports the use of multiple security certificates allowing secure management, authentication and communication with the machine. The following security certificate features can be used with the machine. When you print a document or use Web Based Management (web browser) securely using SSL, you must install the certificate onto your computer.
