SSL/TLS configuration

This topic describes how to configure Micro Focus Connect to be accessible over SSL/TLS.

Micro Focus Connect is installed as a web application within an Apache Tomcat web server. You can add basic SSL/TLS authentication.

To set up basic SSL/TLS configuration:

  1. Follow the steps as per the Apache Tomcat 9 documentation for SSL/TLS.
  2. Restart Tomcat. The server now supports SSL via HTTPS.

The following is an example of a connector specification when you specify the keystorePass and keyPass parameters in clear text:

<Connector port="443" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="100"

minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"

enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"

acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true"

SSLEnabled="true" clientAuth="false"

sslProtocol="TLS" keyAlias="tomcat"




For information on how to decrypt the keystorePass and keyPass parameters, see below.
