Goal

This document provides an overview of how to incrementally setup and test the various stages of configuration needed to use SSL to secure communication between MOD_OC4J and OC4J instance via the AJPS protocol.

The information presented below is intended as a supplement to the following product documentation:

Oracle Containers for J2EE Security Guide 10g (10.1.3.1.0)
B28957-01
Chapter 15: SSL Communication with OC4J
pages 15-1 through 15-24

 

Keep in mind that securing your Oc4J instance will result that DMS does no longer work as DMS does NOT support AJPS and HTTPS protocol.
Since DMS always makes requests to localhost, one workaround is to configure OC4Js to bind to only local host for AJP and HTTP requests when SSL is enabled.
