How do Certificates and CA work in XAP? How to proceed with it?
About TSL, area in which I'm starting right now in XAP ...
What if I want to generate my own certificate using keytool, to release as part of the application we develop? From my understanding, I'd have to set the password, the path to the keystore file, as well as the SSL filter as system properties, through EXTJAVAOPTIONS, in setenv.sh.
What I don't understand is what happens backstages and how do I specify and play with Certificate Authorities to validate the certificate. Actually, I'd like to understand the specifics about certificates, certificate authorities and keystores in the XAP universe, and how they relate to each other. My first question in this regard would be: creating a keystore file from the scratch, what concerns and general points I have to have in mind in order to have a certificate from it and, later, a CA validating the certificate? What sort of procedure may I follow in order to make the configuration work? I'm very new to this area in XAP, just read the documentation at http://docs.gigaspaces.com/xap120sec/... and all it talks about give just a basic idea of what we need to do. I'm wondering if there is a bunch of things backstages that I may care about.
Thanks in advance, guys! Have a nice week!
