Tomcat7 SSL configuration

Postby MuadDib_II » Sat Feb 21, 2015 12:30 pm

Hi all,

I just installed the Synology's Tomcat7 package, and I'm trying to enabled the SSL connections. To do it, I follows the instruction from:

  • first I exported my syno's certificate and ca.
  • then I use the following line to create my server's keystore (in this case a p12 file)

    Code: Select all

    openssl pkcs12 -export -in /volume1/folder/server.crt -inkey /volume1/folder/server.key -out server.p12 -name tomcat -CAfile /volume1/folder/ca.crt -caname root -chain
  • the next step was to copy the serer.p12 file to /volume1/@appstore/Tomcat7/ folder and then change the tomcat server.xml file :

    Code: Select all

    <Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol"
              keystoreFile="${user.home}/server.p12" keystoreType="PKCS12" keystorePass="password"
                maxThreads="150" SSLEnabled="true" scheme="https" secure="true"
                   clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />

But this does not work, I'm able to connect in http (default port 7070) but not with https (port 8443).

Does someone already tried to do it?

Thanks in advance for all your help,

Hi Marc,

Did you manage to configure your Tomcat to use HTTPS?
If so, can you share your solution.
