Note:

You can select the Websafe in addition to all the other encryption methods. The Websafe is used as a fallback if the communication partner does not support any other encryption method.

Note:

If you have selected multiple encryption methods for a rule, the selected encryption methods are processed in a fixed sequence (see Order of Encryption Methods). All possible combinations are considered during processing.
