Can anyone explain briefly how certificates are used in Secure communications? We are evaluating RSA's B-Safe for secure https connections across firewalls. I loaded some CA certificates and a couple of RSA certificates from the product CD on the SilverStream Application server, and tried to connect from a client using HTTPS in the URL. I get com.rsa..SSLAlertedException : certificate unknown.
My question is how does the server pick a certificate to send to the client? and why is the client not recognizing this certificate?
Any help is appreciated,
Savithri

The certificate u have got from the CD will not be recognised and u have to explicitly install it boz it is a test certificate. if u r taking an original certificate from an certificating authority then u need not install it at the client and also it will be recognised
