Chapter 15. Setting up system-wide cryptographic policies in the web console

You can choose from predefined system-wide cryptographic policy levels and switch between them directly in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux web console interface. If you set a custom policy on your system, the web console displays the policy in the Overview page as well as the Change crypto policy dialog window.



  1. Log in to the RHEL web console. For more information, see Logging in to the web console.
  2. In the Configuration card of the Overview page, click your current policy value next to Crypto policy.
  3. In the Change crypto policy dialog window, click on the policy level that you want to start using.
  4. Click the Apply and reboot button.


  • Log back in and check that the Crypto policy value corresponds to the one you selected.
