Yes we can host SapphireIMS using HTTPS.
SapphireIMS provides security for safe communications over networks using SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is built into all major browsers and Web Servers and hence installing a digital certificate enables SSL capabilities.
To enable SSL, a certificate is needed. This certificate contains information like certificate issuer name, validity of the certificate, encryption used etc. The certificate can be purchased from authorized certificate authority like ‘Verisign’, 'Thwate’ or a self-signed certificate can be created (Please refer to the image below). While enabling SSL, the 'server.keystore' is an essential file that needs to be created.
