When trying to create a new keyring in the ProxySG management console, the "Import Keyring" option may sometimes be unavailable (grayed out).  This will occur when the management console is accessed over plain HTTP (console port 8081 by default). When the management console is not accessed over SSL, any data being passed between the proxy and the workstation accessing it is presented in clear text via the HTTP traffic on the wire. Sending an SSL key over an insecure connection places the newly created keyring at risk of being compromised.  For this reason, the "Import Keyring" option is only available when a secure connection to the management console is established (example: https://x.x.x.x:8082).
