Key managers collection

To define the implementation settings for key managers. A key manager is invoked during an SSL handshake to determine which certificate alias is used. The default key manager (WSX509KeyManager) performs alias selection. If more advanced function is desired, define a custom key manager on the Manage endpoint security configurations panel.

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 Key managers.
