While working the front lines in support over the past 16 years of my career, a small handful of issues always seem to crop up as the most requested items when clients call in. One of those items was consistently in depth question on how to setup SSL for any of the products I was supporting. So, of course I'm going to highlight an SSL article when it comes across my plate, as I know how important these types of setups are to you, or clients, with a focus on ensuring your environment's security.
Luckily, John Chewter, Chief Architect for Green Hat Technologies in IBM has written a wonderfully detailed article on developerWorks outlining this process for IBM Rational Integration Tester:
Using SSL within Rational Integration Tester- Overview of key material, the SSL handshake, and its use in Rational Integration Tester transports. Learn how to configure SSL and use the key material in IBM® Rational® Integration Tester to test and virtualize secure services.
Summary: This article explains the various key material types and how they are used within Rational Integration Tester so that it can connect to and test applications secured using SSL. In Part Two we explore how to use the HTTP(S) proxy server to record and re-route secure traffic by using existing key material, or by using the certificate and key that is included in the HTTP proxy server, within the Rational Integration Tester Platform Pack.
