Installation Guideline: SSL Certificates on Tomcat Server

SSL – Secure Socket Layer is a security Protocol. SSL Certificate is a digital signature. SSL Certificate is also known as Public Key Identity certificate. SSL is a protocol for securing communication between a web browser, and web server. Whenever you access a web server using https, the page you are sent is encrypted, and any information you send to that server is also encrypted
