I have an Apache Tomcat 6.0 server hosting 3 sites (all internal on a test subnet), all of which require SSL. Is it possible to have 3 different SSL certs imported into my single .keystore file? If so, how do I specify what site uses what certificate? I've read about keyAlias parameter but I can't seem to get it to work. I could use a wildcard cert if they all had the same domain suffix but they do not (for example, I have https://mysite.mydomain.org, https://myservername, https://myserverIP).

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks

I think a bigger problem is that the way SSL works allows only one cert per server machine (or server IP ?). So the limitation isn't in J2EE, it's in SSL as a whole.

I think it's one certificate per IP address.

Yes but you're not allowed to use the same port with different alias'.
The application would be using the same service with different cnames.
Unless i'm missing something here.
 
Squanch that. And squanch this tiny ad:
