The first time you connect to the SharpV Portal, it is over a non-encrypted HTTP connection, which means that anyone on the network can intercept the data transmitted (including the password).

It is always recommended that you use the HTTPS protocol to log on to the SharpV Portal. This is especially important if you are on a public network. Using HTTPS ensures that logon credentials and the data transmission (except for video feeds) are encrypted.

After you connect to the SharpV Portal, you can configure it to accept logons with SSL encryption (HTTPS), using an SSL certificate. You can either generate a self-signed SSL certificate for the SharpV using the tools provided in the portal, or use a signed certificate from a Certificate Authority such as VeriSign.
