    Virtuoso Server WebID?+TLS+Delegation Setup

    The following steps guide you through the process of configuring a Virtuoso instance to accept SQL or HTTP connections over TLS, where the server in question is identified using a Self-Signed Certificate:

    1. Create a Self-Signed Certificate using the System Admin -> Security -> Public Key Infrastructure tab of the Virtuoso Conductor:

    2. Complete the CA Root Certificate details and click generate button, note the Name value must be the hostname for the HTTPS listener to be created in a later step:

    3. The certificate is now created, click on the ?Configure HTTPS Listeners? button to configure the server for secure HTTP access:

    4. Enter the required parameters for the HTTPS Listener and click the Generate New button to generate a new self signed certificate for use by the server and then click the Save button to save the HTTPS Listener which will be automatically started. Note if running on the default 443 https port then Virtuoso must have been started with Admin or root level privileges for the port usage to be allowed by the OS:

    5. The new HTTPS Listener should now be listed as and available as a started interface.

    6. Use the Virtuoso generated self signed cer/tificate stored in the Virtuoso database to setup the SQL SSL port, by referencing the certificate by name (i.e. https_key_opluswin7qa_usnet_private in the example) proceeded by the db: prefix, in the [Parameters] section of the virtuoso.ini file as below:

      SSLServerPort = 1113 SSLCertificate = db:https_key_opluswin7qa_usnet_private SSLPrivateKey = db:https_key_opluswin7qa_usnet_private X509ClientVerify = 3 X509ClientVerifyDepth = 15 X509ClientVerifyCAFile = db:https_key_opluswin7qa_usnet_private

    7. Restart the Virtuoso Server to active the SQL SSL server listener and check the virtuoso.log file to ensure it has successfully started:

    8. The following Virtuoso applications should be installed from the System Admin -> Packages tab of the Conductor:
    • Sponger Cartridge VAD - To enable querying of remote resource URIs
    • Faceted Browser VAD - To provide human readable form of Web ID Profile documents and ACLs
    • Virtuoso Authentication Layer (VAL) VAD - To enable ACLs for be setup and enforced
    • Note the [URIQA] DefaultHost? param in INI file (virtuoso.ini) must be set to valid hostname to be used by VAL

    9. From the System Admin -> Packages tab (or click the back to packages button) of the Conductor, for the newly installed VAL package select the configure option on the right, and enable the Default and SQL Realms for the following ACL scopes and click the save button:
    • Enable Query ACL Scope ACLs
    • Enable Private Named Graphs ACL Scope ACLs
    • Enable Restrictions ACL Scope ACLs
