Secure SPML communications

Last week I got an email from a developer that is using Project OpenPTK. They want to use HTTPS/SSL to secure communications between the Sun Identity Manager and an OpenPTK-enabled application.

I was pretty sure this was "do-able" but I have not had a chance/need to configure OpenPTK using HTTPS/SSL. With that said, I did some research, contacted some co-workers, and set-up a little test lab. The process is relatively straight forward, I used two Glassfish domains (SPML-Server / SPML-Client) and self-signed certificates:

  1. Configure OpenPTK applications to use SSL/HTTPS
  2. Replace the default certificate on the SPML-Server (Sun Identity Manager)
  3. Add the certificate to the SPML-Client (OpenPTK-enabled Application)

The complete (detailed) process is documented in the Project OpenPTK Release 1.1 Installation Guide

Hi Scott,

I'm looking for the OpenPTK javadocs and the link is broken. I would like to use version 1.1, but want to see the javadoc first.

Thanks!

Sorry about this ... we are in the middle of moving sites to different servers. I put a zip file of the 1.2 JavaDoc on the wiki site, there now is a link on the 1.1 and 1.2 Documentation pages.

Since were talking about javadocs ... They are generated automatically by the ant script when the project is compiled. Anyone can generate the javadocs by downloading the source and running "ant documentation".

Thanks for the question.
