Certificate Files
To configure SSL for a Broker Java client, you must first store its SSL client certificate information (public certificate/private key pair) in a keystore file, and the trusted root (public certificate of the client certificate issuer, or CA) in a truststore file. These certificates are used to create the Broker Java client's SSL identity.
For the client to make an SSL connection to the Broker Server, you must also have assigned SSL identities to the Broker Server. Once the SSL certificate for the Broker Server is configured, you can create an SSL connection between the Broker Java client and its Broker Server.
Detailed information about creating and managing keystores and truststores for the Broker Server and the Broker admin component is provided in Administering webMethods Broker .
