2 Encrypted Communication with SSL

Securing the connection between the management client and Rhino

By default, the interconnection between Rhino and a management client uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. (You can disable SSL by editing the JMX remote adaptor m-let configuration.)

How does SSL work?
An SSL connection for sending data protects it by using encryption, which prevents eavesdropping and tampering. SSL uses a cryptographic system that doubly encrypts the data, with both a public key known to everyone and a private (or "secret") key known only to the recipient of the message.

For more about SSL, please see SSL Certificates HOWTO from the Linux Documentation Project, and Java SE Security Documentation from Oracle.

Below are descriptions of Rhino SSL keystores and using the keytool utility to manage them.
