I have installed Tomcat and I want to add security on my registeration page using SSL. Could anyone help me by showing me how to install it. Do I have to purchase anything from VeriSign or others. Please help?

When I try following the steps in ssl-howto.html, I get the following error:
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Key pair not generated, alias (tomcat) already exists.

What does keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA actually do? What is the alias for?

I'm pretty much new to SSL, any help is welcome. Thanks
