Hi,

I obtained certifcate from comoda.
Configured in tomcat and able to access using https.

I need to encrypt the data and decrypt the same using anyother encryption method?
Or ssl itself take care of encryption and decryption.

I have to use public certificate for encryption and pass it to webservice which will decrypt it using a private key.
To achive that configure ssl is enough or do the encrption/ decryption in java layer?

Please help

SSL handles the encryption.
