In this article, we will learn how to configure self-signed certificate for Apache Tomcat server for transacting data in a very secure way between the client and server
Secured Socket Layer (secured http)
The following instructions will guide you through the SSL installation process on Tomcat. If you have more than one server or device, you will need to install the certificate on each server or device you need to secure. Often times, Eclipse IDE may need access to the Internet for some plugins install and update. If your computer is behind a proxy server, most company do, Eclipse will keep hanging and take very long time to process and failed at the end. You have to configure the proxy settings in Eclipse in order to pass through it. SSL/HTTPS is a protocol used for security to communicate between client and server by implementing encrypted data and self-signed certificates. Configuring SSL in Tomcat. Use keytool to generate self-signed certificates; un-comment SSL connector to support SSL/HTTPS connection and add key details; access secure page using 8443 port. Tomcat plugin eclipse free download. Eclipse Tomcat Plugin The Eclipse Tomcat Plugin provides simple integration of a tomcat servlet container for the developm. The SAP Cloud Connector (SCC) uses tomcat and a java keystore under the covers. The keystore used by Tomcat hold the SSL certificates. Typically you interact with the java keystore with the keytool command. Keytool does not support importing private keys.

Configuring SSL in Tomcat
- use keytool to generate self-signed certificates
- un-comment SSL connector to support SSL/HTTPS connection and add key details
- access secure page using 8443 port
- to configure SSL/HTTPS to support Java Web Application
Generate self-signed certificate (keystore)
Use keytool utility of Java to create self-signed certificate and enter required information

A key store will be generated at location “D:DownloadsSoftwareapache-tomcat-7.0.55” with name “TestingSSLKeyStore”
Enable SSL connector in Tomcat (Tomcat_Home/conf/server.xml)
Eclipse Tomcat Config
Un-comment tomcat’s 8443 connector port
Add below details to this connector port
keystoreFile –> D:DownloadsSoftwareapache-tomcat-7.0.55TestingSSLKeyStore
keystorePass –> tomcat7055
That’s it ……… SSL is enabled in Apache Tomcat server listening at port 8443
Start the Apache Tomcat server 7.0.55
Access secure page using 8443 port

Add Apache Tomcat To Eclipse
I have a site running on http://IP_Address:8080/AppName and it works fine. I am trying to setup https access for the same. I followed the links
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc ... and_Tomcat
But I cannot access the site over https://IP_Address:8443/AppName. I have enabled port 8443 on the firewall. I did generate a CSR for tomcat and installed the certificate I received from the CA. Kindly advise where I could have gone wrong. Where should I check for relevant logs which could help.
Thanks a bunch.
