Subject [GitHub] incubator-brooklyn pull request: Adds instructions to enable HTTPS
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2014 11:02:01 GMT
Github user richardcloudsoft commented on the pull request:
    I've tried out these instructions and they worked well. There's a couple of points which
I think are worth making.
    1. The command given is creating a keystore with the name "mypassword". The user should
be told that they should pick their own password. The same password needs to be used both
in the `keytool` command and in
    2. The command is creating a self-signed certificate (fail 1) without a CN field identifying
the website server name (fail 2). While this is OK to get an encrypted session, web browsers
*will* complain about this. We should inform about this in the instructions; IMO it is acceptable
to leave the process of using keytool to insert a *valid* certificate as an exercise for the
user (we don't need to describe the whole CSR flow with keytool examples etc.)
