By default, when you install the Client Access server role on a computer that's running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync virtual directory is created on the default Internet Information Services (IIS) Web site on the Exchange server.
After you obtain a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate to use together with the Client Access server on the default Web site or on the Web site where you host your Exchange ActiveSync virtual directory, you can configure the Web site to require SSL. You can enable SSL for all Web sites hosted by the Client Access server or enable SSL only for Exchange ActiveSync.
Configuring an Exchange ActiveSync virtual directory to use SSL is just one step in managing security for Exchange ActiveSync. For more information about how to manage security for Exchange ActiveSync, see Managing Exchange ActiveSync Security.
