Dynamic outbound endpoint SSL settings

To set properties for dynamic outbound endpoint SSL configurations, which represent associations between SSL configurations and their target protocol, host, and port.

To view this admin console page, click Security > SSL certificate and key management. Under Configuration settings, click Manage endpoint security configurations > {Inbound | Outbound} > ssl_configuration. Under Related items, click Dynamic [inbound | outbound] endpoint SSL configurations. Then click the New button.

Add connection information

Specifies select information in the form protocol,host,port for the outbound connection. Multiple selection criteria can be entered. An asterisk (*) can be used to mean all protocols, hosts, or ports. Use an * for any field.

Data type: Text

An example of selection criteria is *,www.ibm.com,*, which means that any time the target host is www.ibm.com, use the SSL configuration specified here. Another example selection criteria is IIOP,*,*, which means that any outbound IIOP request uses the SSL configuration specified in the SSL configuration field. When there is a conflict between two selection criteria, the appserver uses the first match. The list of valid protocols we can use include: IIOP, HTTP, JMS, LDAP, SIP, ADMIN_SOAP, ADMIN_IIOP, or WEBSERVICES_HTTP.

Get certificate alias

When selected, the keystore within the selected SSL configuration is queried for a list of personal certificates from which to choose.
