From its early days, Biblionix has used only encrypted communications in providing access to its SIP2 service for patron authentication. Encrypted connections protect patron information that is passed back and forth between systems, which formerly was passed "in the clear" over the Internet. Their preferred connection is established over a TLS (formerly SSL) session using a private certificate Biblionix signs and provides to organizations needing to communicate with their SIP service. A certificate is assigned to the organization hosting a service (such as the Library Simplified Circulation Manager) that needs to communicate via SIP. Therefore, for an organization hosting SimplyE for multiple libraries, only one certificate is required.
