Configuring TLS certificates for message processing applications

To configure a secure connection between the messaging services and applications that use the messaging services and push APIs, configure each endpoint.

To create a secure connection for applications that use the messaging services and push APIs:
  • Create a self-signed certificate or issue a certificate request to obtain a certificate from a certificate authority.
  • Add the certificate to the existing messaging services key database, then extract the certificate. For more information, see Managing certificates for HCL SafeLinx.
  • Create a Java or C application key database for use by the message-processing application and add the extracted certificate to it. For information about creating a key database, see Creating a key database file.
  • Transfer the key database to the system of the message-processing application.
The type of key database that you need depends on the programming language that is used to create the message-processing application. C applications use a key database and stash file combination. Java applications use a key database class file.
