The Site Management Portal UI comprises a Java application, which runs with a private JRE. See Java software and private JREs for a definition of private JREs. The Java security model allows only trusted applications to perform certain activities such as printing, connecting to the network, retrieving system information, and accessing your computer’s local file system. Trusted applications must be digitally signed and must be granted permissions by the end user.
The Metasys Site Management Portal UI is digitally signed with a certificate provided by the VeriSign® Certificate Authority (CA). The certificate verifies that the Metasys system application has not been tampered with and is distributed by Johnson Controls. A message appears stating that the security certificate was issued by a company that is trusted and indicates whether your certificate is expired.
