HTTP SSL Configuration collection

To configure transport-level SSL (SSL) security. Use this configuration when a Web service is a client to another Web service.

Use transport-level security to enable HTTP SSL (or HTTPS). Transport-level security can be enabled or disabled independently from message-level security. Because transport-level security provides minimal security, use message-level security when security is essential to the Web service application.

HTTP SSL Enabled Specifies secure socket communications for the HTTP transport for this port. When enabled, WAS uses the HTTP SSL Configuration setting.

This option is used if you select HTTP SSL Enabled. SSL aliases are defined in the SSL configuration repertoire, which you can configure by clicking Security > SSL.
