Subject Re: Adding HTTPS to Tomcat/Apache/mod_jk install PROBLEM
Date Fri, 23 Aug 2002 17:55:05 GMT
I have been following this thread from the beginning as I previously posted a 
similar question but got a poor response. 

I experimented with mod_ssl on apache and then jsse on tomcat and i got both 
of them working fine. I clicked on the right mouse button -properties(this is 
in windows IE) to view the encryption level of the apache server pages and i 
got the following message for my connection

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

which is ok. I did the same for the standalone tomcat machine but it says the 
page/connection is not encrypted. But I am viewing the page over https and i 
saw the prompt for the self signed certificate. What does this mean?

Ideally i would like to have encrypted pages but i am not sure which machine 
in my production environment should do the ssl stuff. My set-up is tomcat 
1.3.26 mod_jk and Tomcat 4.18. I only need the ssl when people want to view 
jsp pages (basically people accessing pages on the tomcat machine). But jsse 
does not encrypt the pages so how can I go about this problem. 

Can you eloborate on the machine that handles the request not the one that 
serves the request should do ssl please.
