RE: [ajug-members]: Tomcat and SSL
I have Tomcat now running ssl - thanks for the help! I created a .keystore
file with a self-signed certificate and then uncommented the xml HTTP1
Now I need to figure out how to set up client-cert! Any guidance? My
main concern is in each client being able to download and install a
Additionally, I've created two new directories as follows:
These are to store the client and server certificate. My question is how
does this relate (or not) to the .keystore already created and is my path
correct? When I get to the testing point, I can download a free certificate
from either Thwart or Verisign for testing, but I think I'm a long way from
that. My understanding is that the certificate authentication, once
installed, will be transparent to the client. If so, can I still use a
login form to access and filter combobox population based on the username?
Thanks again for any and all guidance!

you will need to set up a certificate. i will send an
example of that later. look up cacerts on google on
how to create a dummy certificate using the java
certificate tool that comes with j2sdk.
