Good Day!!!

I have one query on SSL configuration on WebSPhere. If I configure CA certs like verisign ,geotrust on WebSphere Application Server. do I need to add WebSphere Personal cert or root cert of CA into plugin-key.kdb if I want to establish a secured communication between IHS to WebSphere.

Thank you in Advance.

In WebSphere 8 all you have to do is use ikeyman and configure the certificate in IHS, have Security turned on on WebSphere and have the plugin-cfg.xml propagated to IHS. The connection between IHS and WebSphere will be automatically SSL.

I agree. Here's the link:
