Hi all,

Im totally new in this area so please be patient with me.

i want to make a secure web connection. so, i created the private key with openSSL as follow:

openssl>genrsa -out mykey.pem

here is my first question???

do i have to generate a CSR? or public key certificate?

should i use:

openssl>req -new -key mykey.pem -out mypublic.pem
or
openssl>req -new -key mykey.pem -x509 -out mypublic.pem

My second question is:
how do the web browsers of the clients automatically load my public key and use it to encrypt data when a form request is dedicated to my web site



regards

1. This is java forum, so you should restrict yourself to java relevant questions.
2. Both the browser and the server support the SSL/TLS protocol, which is described in RFC 2246 and its sucessors. It is available to java programmers through the JSSE.


Nice to meet you.

This question is very related to java,because:

1-i want to add the public/private keys to the keystore
2-i want to use the private key to sign my jar using the jar signer
3-i want to configure the java.policy to trust the digital signature on the jar file

i think all of this is related to java anyway
