The SSL support in webMethods Broker provides different levels of security for the communication between a Broker client and the Broker to which it is connected. This section describes how to use the BrokerConnectionDescriptor functions to control the use of SSL.
In order for your Broker client to use SSL, your Broker must first be configured to use SSL. See Administering webMethods Broker for information on configuring your Broker.
