Encrypted connections are established over the SSL and TLS protocols. By default, Kaspersky Small Office Security scans such connections upon request from protection components, such as Mail Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam, Safe Money, URL Advisor, Private Browsing, Safe Browsing, and Anti-Banner.

To change encrypted connections settings:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click Settings button in the lower part of the main window.

    This opens the Settings window.

  3. Go to the Security settings section.
  4. In the Advanced settings block, click the Network settings button.
  5. In the Network settings window, go to the Encrypted connections scan section.
  6. Select an action to perform when connecting to websites over an encrypted connection:
    • Do not scan encrypted connections. Kaspersky Small Office Security does not scan encrypted connections.
    • Scan encrypted connections upon request from protection components. Kaspersky Small Office Security only scans encrypted connections upon request from URL Advisor. This action is selected by default.
    • Always scan encrypted connections. Kaspersky Small Office Security always scans encrypted connections.

    Clicking the Show certificates link opens a window with a list of trusted certificates that are used by popular websites. Certificates are added to this list if you click Add to trusted certificates and continue in a Kaspersky Small Office Security warning when visiting a website. After you add a certificate to the list, the website is considered trusted. You can add or remove certificates in the Trusted root certificates window using the Add and Delete buttons.

    If you have multiple user accounts on your computer, and one of the users accepts the new certificate, this certificate is also added to the trusted certificate list for all other users.

  7. Select an action to perform if there are errors when scanning encrypted connections:
    • Ignore. If this action is selected, Kaspersky Small Office Security terminates the connection with the website on which the scan error occurred.

      • Ignore. Kaspersky Small Office Security terminates the connection with the website on which the scan error occurred.
      • Add domain to exclusions. Kaspersky Small Office Security adds the website address to the list of trusted addresses.

      This option is selected by default.

    • Add domain to exclusions. Kaspersky Small Office Security adds the website to the list of trusted addresses. Kaspersky Small Office Security does not scan encrypted connections on websites from the list of trusted addresses. These websites are displayed in the Trusted addresses window, which can be opened by clicking the Trusted addresses link.
