Base URL 

The base URL is used to create the download link in the email notifications sent to the recipients of a transfer. Enter the URL under which your server will be available in the network/internet. When using the Electronic Identity feature, the base URL is used for redirecting a user back to the Cryptshare Web App after a sender or recipient identification.

Please note: If you are using the feature Electronic Identity (eID), changing the Base URL may mean that this feature can no longer be used. Please contact your Cryptshare Sales Contact before you change the Base URL.


Force redirect 

For both, the Cryptshare User Interface and the Administration Interface you can enable a redirect to a secure channel. If enabled, all incoming http connections will be redirected to https connections. This setting is not dependent on the URL you have set, so it is irrelevant whether you have set the URL using 'https' or 'http'.

iFrame Security

For security reasons embedding of Cryptshare into other websites can be restricted to avoid the 'ClickJacking' attack scenario (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clickjacking). The setting allows two modes:

  •  Only allow embedding within the same source
  •  Generally allow embedding

The default setting does only allow embedding within the same source. This prohibits external web sites to show Cryptshare within a frame. The setting will influence the http header 'X-Frame-Options'

What is the risk if embedding is generally allowed?
This kind of attack works by presenting the user with a website and redirecting any click of the user, without him noticing, to a hidden website in the background. This way a specific behaviour of the Website in the background (in this case to Cryptshare) can be triggered. The user shall be tempted to send data via Cryptshare without him noticing.


Restarting the Cryptshare Service
By clicking the "Save changes" button, you can re-start the Cryptshare service, even when not having changed any settings on the page.
