Subject: Re: ssl application

While doing some SSL research last week, I stumbled on this:

If you wish to secure the entire tomcat installation (which can be done
regardless of how you provide SSL), add the following to
TOMCAT_HOME/conf/web.xml inside the web-app tags:

<!-- redirect all traffic to the SSL port -->
    <web-resource-name>Automatic SLL Forwarding</web-resource-name>

It worked for me (Linux, Tomcat 6.0.30, JRE 1.5.0_22).
