This document intends to walk through the steps required to implement SSL / HTTPS on P6 Web Access application server using JBoss. HTTPS uses the SSL protocol to encrypt the data traveling between the application server and the client workstation. This encryption helps protect the data being transmitted.

If using P6 v7, this document can be used for both P6 Web Access and Progress Reporter, if using the JBoss Application Server.
