To manage security settings, go to Configuration → Settings → General settings.
This page enables multi-store configuration; it means that the same settings can be defined for all stores or differ from store to store. If you want to manage settings for a certain store, choose its name from the multi-store configuration dropdown list and select all the checkboxes needed on the left to set custom values for them. For further details, refer to Multi-store.
Define the Security settings as follows:
- In the Admin area allowed IP field, enter the IP addresses that are allowed to access the back end. Leave this field empty if you do not want to restrict access to the back end. Use commas between the IP addresses (for example, 127.0.0.10, 188.8.131.52).
- Select Enable honeypot to enable honeypot. In computer terminology, a honeypot is a trap set to detect, deflect or, in some manner, counteract attempts of unauthorized use of information systems.
- In the Encryption private key field, enter the encryption private key used for storing sensitive data. Click Change at any time to change this key. All sensitive data are encrypted using this private key.
It is recommended to make a backup of your database before you change the encryption key. Sensitive data include all credit card information (only when this credit card information is stored in the store database).
