OLIS Service Announcement: Aleph OPAC now more secure

As of today, your Aleph OPAC is running over the more secure https protocol rather than http. Data passed between the browser and the Aleph server is encrypted on all screens and not just the patron login screens.

The url you are using for the prod OPAC is in the format:  http://zzz.sunyconnect.suny.edu:4##0/F
* zzz = campus code
* 4##0 = campus port number

After you click any Aleph link within the catalog, you will see the url changes to:  https://zzz.sunyconnect.suny.edu:4##9/F
* Note the ‘s’ in https and the last digit of the port number changes from 0 to 9.

If you’d like the opening screen of the OPAC to be https, you will need to change your link to:
Prod: https://zzz.sunyconnect.suny.edu:4##9/F
Dev: https://zzz-dev.sunyconnect.suny.edu:8##9/F
* Substitute your campus code and the middle 2 digits of your port number

If you have any questions specific to your campus, please submit a Footprints ticket.
