Subject Re: AW: SSL Certificates from a CA...

Here's a link to the Tomcat SSL How To document.

http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/ssl-howto.html

This is a link to the keytool documentation in the JDK.

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/tooldocs/tools.html

Note, it's also now possible to use a PKCS12 keystore. This would be useful
if you already had a private key/certificate that you were using with
OpenSSL/Apache and wanted to use that.
