HTTPS - SSL

Hello,

I was wondering if is there any way to use a specific cipher in SSL connections.
Because in the examples that I have read I have not seen any thing about that.

SSL/TLS does support various ciphers (see here), but it's generally up to the two communicating implementations to negotiate which one to use.

Do you have a particular need to select the cipher?

I must do some analises in many ciphers suite, so that is why I need to choose a cipher suite.

I am testing in the basic way. I have configurated my tomcat to accept https connections. I was wondering if there any way to configure the tomcat to use a specific cipher suite.

If it's at all possible -and I doubt that it is- then it would be a JRE setting, not a Tomcat setting.

Couldn't you test outside of SSL, by just using JSSE, or do you need HTTP to be involved?

You are right, makes more sense configure JRE than the tomcat...
I do need I HTTP involved.
