Using certificates with TOMCAT

Using certificates with tomcat allows you to encrypt incoming and outgoing traffic, providing the remote client accept your certificate. Using SSL / TLS you can protect PLAIN text password when authenticating clients. In addition you could use information extracted from certificates to authenticate clients. Tomcat relies on the JAVA environment, therefore it is not using openssl, but Java Secure Socket Extensions (JSSE), and Java Cryptography extension (JCE).
