MDM Platform

To ensure a secure communication environment, you can configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) support on Apache Tomcat.

You are recommended to configure Apache Tomcat with SSL support only when running Tomcat as standalone web server. It is not necessary to configure SSL support when Apache Tomcat runs behind another web server such as Apache.

Before you begin

You have a keystore file containing a self signed certificate for SSL. For more information about how to generate a keystore file, see How to generate a keystore file.


  1. Browse to the <TomcatPath>/conf directory, and then open the server.xml file.
  2. Uncomment the following text.
        <Connector port="8543" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"
                   maxThreads="150" SSLEnabled="true" scheme="https" secure="true"
                   clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />
  3. Add the information of the complete path to the keystore file and the password for the keystore file.
    <Connector port="8543" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"
                   maxThreads="150" SSLEnabled="true" scheme="https" secure="true"
                   keystoreFile="${user.home}/.keystore" keystorePass="changeit"
                   clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />
    Warning: Make sure that the keystoreFile contains the path and file name of the keystore, and the keystorePass matches the password for the keystore.
  4. Save your changes into the file.
  5. Restart Apache Tomcat to take into account your updates.
