 How can our Trac website be secured? 

Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are cryptographic protocols that provide secure communications on the Internet. There are slight differences between SSL and TLS, but they essentially provide the same protection. Redrock offers SSL Encryption utilizing a 3rd party application called Stunnel.

Stunnel is a free, open-source SSL wrapper that is installed on the server with the Trac application. The Trac application connects with Stunnel without encryption on the local server. Then Stunnel encrypts the data and connects with the users' browsers across the network.

For more details about Stunnel, goto the Use SSL Encryption to Secure Your Trac System documentation.
