Hi,

I'm new to SSL and have several questions and I appreciate any help.

I configured the apache tomcat server.xml file to enable the connecter in order to support SSL in its communication. Of course this is after creating the .keystore file. These steps I followed from apache HOWTO documentation. However, since this is a self signed certificate, I can't access the tomcat splash page unless I added an exception. Is this ok for testing purposes? and if yes, how can I remove this exception after testing?

For the moment I can't afford buying a certificate.

Also, I have another question which is that I used a self signed certificate for my applet to run in local machine but without SSL. Now as I have those keys and certificates already exist, how I can use them instead of creating new from scratch and sign the applet again?

Thanks in advance,
