 v4 == Enable Tomcat SSL security == To enable ssl we need a valid certificate from a Certificate Authority such as Verisign. We can create one but the browser will not recognize as trusted. To enable ssl we need a valid certificate from a Certificate Authority such as Verisign but we can create one although the browser will not recognize as trusted. We will need two files: keystore and truststore. A keystore is a file which contains private keys and certificates. The certificates are sent to the remote server in a SSLConnection. A truststore contains the CA certificates you are willing to trust when a remote party presents its certificate. To install and configure SSL support on Tomcat 6, you need to follow these simple steps: === Install and configure SSL support on Tomcat 6 === Create a keystore file to store the server's private key and self-signed certificate by executing the following: password: changeit }}} This command will create a file in your user home directory named ".keystore". This keystore contains a certificate whose alias is ''tomcat'' This command will create a file in your user home directory named ".keystore". This keystore contains the server certificate whose alias is ''tomcat''. Download the ESGF Truststore which contains the trusted CA's and add your tomcat certificate: }}} Deploy esg-orp.war into tomcat 6 3. Add the truststore to the classpath (it will be required by Java) Edit $CATALINA_HOME/bin/setclasspath.bat (windows) or$CATALINA_HOME/bin/setclasspath.sh (Linux) and add the following: {{{ rem Windows set "JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx2560m -Xms2560m -Ddebug=true -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=C:/apache-tomcat-6.0.36/config_files/esg-orp/esg-truststore.ts -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=changeit" echo %JAVA_OPTS% }}} === Deploy and configure ESG-ORP=== 1. Start tomcat server. Run '''$CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.bat on windows''' or '''$CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh''' on Linux ESG-ORP manages a whitelist. This list is used by the app to allow the idp's. The idp's are entities which provide an openid login and return a valid cookie. We will need two lists and you can download them from here To work properly, ESG-ORP needs some configuration changes. Edit line 84 of /WEB-INF/classes/esg/orp/orp/config/security-context-auth.xml {{{ }}} Configure ORP to sign the cookies with our keystore Edit the file WEB-INF/classes/esg/orp/orp/config/appli For further information visit: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/ssl-howto.html#Configuration
