Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-911) Admin Console should require SSL
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 19:22:41 GMT
    [ ] 
Aaron Mulder commented on GERONIMO-911:

Not only that, but you get a different warning if the host name of the HTTPS server doesn't
match the host name of the certificate.  Our only option would be to get a certificate for
"localhost" and assume that the user wouldn't put the proper server hostname into the URL
(e.g. https://localhost would work but would not), but I suspect we'd
have trouble getting a certificate issued for "localhost" since it would be so subject to

Bottom line, I don't think we can default to HTTPS.  But we can certainly provide a document
or wizard to enable HTTPS (where you select a real keystore, enter passwords, etc.) and point
you to the HTTPS URL for the console.  That would be the better way to go in my opinion.
