Subject JSSE/mod_ssl or wrong mailing list
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2002 17:09:50 GMT
I posted this a couple of days ago and so far I have had no response so  am I 
asking a wrong question in the wrong mailing list does anyone know of a 
better place where my tomcat ssl encryption questions can be asked?

I had been following the recent disscusion of login + ssl which has been very 
useful info for me.

Also does anyone know which is better to use the mod_ssl or JSSE



I have just followed the Tomcat SSL HOWTO and I am able to get my 
https://localhost:443/ page. I then right-click on my mouse to get up the 
page properties; 

Protocol:            Hyper Text Transfer With Privacy
Type:                 HTML Document
Connection:        Not Encrypted
Address(URL):    https://localhost:443/index.html
Size:          2572 bytes

but it says the page is not encrypted why does this happen? should it not 
state some sought of encryption like 128 bit?

I also tried the Apache + mod_ssl HOWTO and I do get an encrypted connection 
which says the following;

Connection:    TLS 1.0, RC4 with 128 bit encryption (High); RSA with 1024 bit 


I have apache 1.3.26 (Linux box) + mod_jk + Tomcat 4.04 (Windows box)

The Tomcat server in my environment handles login forms processes them and 
then puts the user to their homepage. I wish to encrypt this login process. I 

don't think I need to use apache +mod_ssl to do any connection encryption 
because the login form is sent to the Tomcat server.  

I cannot figure out what I am missing? Can anyone help please?

Thanxs in Advance
