applications that are based on Foundation 9.1 or later software, and running in non-FIPS 140 mode use TLSv1.2 encrypted connections by default. For applications that are based on pre-9.1 Foundation software, the encrypted connections are configured by using the two environment variables, and .

Note: These environment variables are ignored if the communicating applications are TLS-capable, but are honored when a TLS-capable application is interacting with a non-TLS-capable application.
To set the environment variables so that they can be used by the programs of an Smart Assurance product, edit the file, which is located in the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf directory of that product.


  1. Go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory and enter the following command to open the file:
    sm_edit conf/
  2. Review the contents of the file. The default values for the SM_INCOMING_PROTOCOL and SM_OUTGOING PROTOCOl are 1 and 0.
  3. Update the values for the variables to meet the needs of your system.
    To raise security to the next highest level, change 1 to 2:
  4. Save and close the file.
    The modified version of the file is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf directory.
  5. Restart the Manager if applicable.
