hello, everyone!
I have a question and hope everyone will help me!
I want to create an SSL connection between CA (JBoss 5.1 - EJBCA 4.0.12 - JDK 6) and MySQL, how do I do?
thank you very much!

You need to do a few things:

1) Configure MySQL to use SSL: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/ssl-connections.html

2) Change the URL *-ds.xml file to use the URL that comes out of step 1

3) Add the private key (from the credentials crated in step 1) to the credential store used by JBoss AS (one way to do this is to add it to the jdk_home/jre/lib/security/jssecacerts file, but there are other possibilities also). The important thing is that the JVM running JBoss AS needs the private key to be able to do the SSL communication.

Caveat: the above is an assumption based on what I do to do to get Java apps to talk to SSL web services; I have never actually set up SSL with MySQL but I suspect the steps are similar.
