I am new to SSL implementation. I would like to know the step by step process to implement SSL for a webpage. I have gathered few information about SSL and I am not clear as what exactly to be done.

My requirement:

I have learned how to create a certificate using keytool and I am not clear what has to be done after that. Let me put what I understood so far.

1. I should create a certificate using keytool at server side.
2. When the client requires the page I am not clear what should be done such as certificate verification etc., and how. Can anyone please tell me the exact procedure to implement the SSL.

Thanks in advance.....

I don't know why using REST with SSL would be any different. If you are encountering a problem, you can post your code (or if you have a REST service already implemented, post the URL) and I will look at it.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
