Figure 24. Connecting to proxy server and checking the encrypted traffic

Secure connections

If you want Dr.Web to check data transmitted over SSL, TLS or STARTTLS protocols, enable the Check encrypted traffic option. SpIDer Mail will check messages sent over POP3S, SMTPS, or IMAPS, and SpIDer Gate—messages sent over HTTPS.

If your client application that uses secure connections does not refer to the default Windows system certificate storage, then you need to export the Doctor Web security certificate and to import it to every application manually.

The security certificate is valid for one year. You should import the certificate again every year if necessary.

What is a security certificate

The following applications may require the Doctor Web certificate import:

Opera browser;

Firefox browser;

Mozilla Thunderbird mail client;

The Bat! mail client and others.

How to export and import the Doctor Web certificate

1.Click Export.

2.Choose folder you want the certificate to be saved. Click OK.

3.Import the certificate to a target application using the application settings. Find more details about the importing of certificate in target application user documentation.

If Check encrypted traffic is activated, for correct working of cloud storages clients (such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Yandex.Disk etc.), exclude these application form SpIDer Gate checks.
