Configuring Content Encryption and Decryption (Lionbridge Freeway and SDL TMS only)

Note: This feature is available only when using the Clay Tablet Translation Connector for SDL TMS or the Clay Tablet Translation Connector for Lionbridge Freeway.

You can generate your own keys to encrypt and decrypt content you send for translation from the Lionbridge Connector for Adobe Experience Manager ("Connector for Adobe Experience Manager") to either:

  • the Clay Tablet Translation Connector for SDL TMS ("Connector for SDL TMS")
  • the Clay Tablet Translation Connector for Lionbridge Freeway ("Connector for Freeway")
Before translation:
  1. The Connector for Adobe Experience Manager uses the generated keys to encrypt the content once it is ready for translation.
  2. The Connector for Adobe Experience Manager sends the encrypted content via the Clay Tablet Platform to the Connector for SDL TMS or to the Connector for Freeway.
  3. Either:
  • The Connector for SDL TMS uses the generated keys to decrypt the content before sending it to SDL TMS.
  • The Connector for Freeway delivers encrypted content to Freeway.
After translation:
  1. Relevant to SDL TMS only. The Connector for SDL TMS uses the generated keys to encrypt the translated content once it is ready to send back to Adobe Experience Manager.
  2. The Connector for SDL TMS or the Connector for Freeway sends the encrypted content via the Clay Tablet Platform to the Connector for Adobe Experience Manager.
  3. The Connector for Adobe Experience Manager uses the generated keys to decrypt the content before sending it to Adobe Experience Manager.

This feature is currently supported only if either:

  • The translation connector is the Connector for Freeway and the Add-On for Lionbridge Freeway is installed.
  • The translation connector is the Connector for SDL TMS and the Add-On for SDL TMS is installed.

Note about Lionbridge Freeway: Contact your Lionbridge Freeway account manager to arrange sending your keystore to the Connector for Freeway. This enables Lionbridge to decrypt content after delivery to Freeway and encrypt content before delivering translated content.

To configure this option:
  1. Click Admin Tools > Configuration in the Lionbridge Connector rail to open the Configuration page. For information on opening the Lionbridge Connector rail, see Configuring the Connector.
  1. In the Path field, enter the file path of the encryption keystore.
  2. In the Password field, enter the keystore password.
  3. Click Test to test the password.

A message box indicates whether the password passed the test.

  1. Click Admin Tools > LSP and Keys in the Lionbridge Connector rail to open the LSP & Keys page.
  2. In the LSP and License Keys section, click Edit next to the translation provider.
  1. Do one of the following: 
  1. In the Key Alias field, enter the name for identifying a key within the keystore.
  2. In the Key Password field, enter the password for securing the key. This ensures that even someone who can authenticate against the keystore cannot read an individual protected key entry.
  3. To use a blank password, select the Use blank check box.

Note: Select this check box if there is no password for the key. The Java keytool utility, which you use to generate the encryption key, supports blank passwords. In this case, the keystore password unlocks the key.

For more information about the LSP & Keys page, see Editing a License Key.
