I want to write Secure JSP’s. For this I want to make use of HTTPS CLIENT Authentication mechanism. I have followed the following steps :- Step 1 : Installing SSL Libraries. For this we need JSSE. Since I am using JDL1.4 to it is already there. Step 2 : Enabling SSL in <CATALINA_HOME>\conf\server.xml (I am using Tomcat 4.1.12) <Connector className="org.apache.catalina.connector.http.HttpConnector" port="8083" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75" acceptCount="10" debug="0" scheme="https" secure="true">
<Factory className="org.apache.catalina.net.SSLServerSocketFactory" clientAuth="false" protocol="TLS" /> </Connector> This is causing the Server to shutdown whenever started (startup.bat). Step 3 : Generating public and private keys How do I generate public and private keys for alias “tomcat”? Is the following command correct. <JAVA_HOME>\keytool –genkey –alias tomcat –keyalg RSA OR it should be : <CATALINA_HOME>\keytool –genkey –alias tomcat –keyalg RSA Step 4 Changing web.xml Can anybody help me to tackle the problems encountered in step 2 and 3.
