The Open Platform for the Internet of Things

Device Management Content IoT applications require things to be connected securely and reliably to a wide range of applications and market participants on a single platform. Efficient device management (machine-to-machine or M2M) is also a key requirement. Not only does the M2M component of the Bosch IoT Suite provide a high-performance and reliable connection to things, it also helps you operate a secure, flexible and transparent infrastructure for distributed things and devices. Thanks to device management, users can abstract devices and make them available as logical things or systems within the commercial context of IoT applications. How the Bosch IoT Suite works Depending on whether or not they are web-enabled, distributed devices can be controlled either directly or indirectly via agent hubs at M2M gateways (a combination of embedded PC and internet gateway).

A Simple, Step-By-Step Guide To Apache Tomcat SSL Configuration Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a protocol that provides security for communications between client and server by implementing encrypted data and certificate-based authentication. Technically, the term "SSL" now refers to the Transport Layer ouSecurity (TLS) protocol, which is based on the original SSL specification. SSL is one of the most common ways of integrating secure communication on the internet, as it is a mature protocol that is well-supported by every major browser and a number of well-respected organizations provide third party SSL authentication services. If you're using Apache Tomcat, chances are that at least some of the data you're handling is sensitive, and SSL is an easy way to offer your users security. The good news is that Tomcat fully supports the SSL protocol. The bad news is that the configuration process and SSL itself can be a little confusing for first-time users. Don't worry! Tcat eliminates tedious configuration tasks. How SSL Works SSL Basics HTTPS vs. Looks good!

Yelp/paasta Apache Tomcat 8 (8.0.30) - SSL/TLS Configuration HOW-TO Tomcat currently operates only on JKS, PKCS11 or PKCS12 format keystores. The JKS format is Java's standard "Java KeyStore" format, and is the format created by the keytool command-line utility. This tool is included in the JDK. The PKCS12 format is an internet standard, and can be manipulated via (among other things) OpenSSL and Microsoft's Key-Manager. Each entry in a keystore is identified by an alias string. To import an existing certificate into a JKS keystore, please read the documentation (in your JDK documentation package) about keytool. To import an existing certificate signed by your own CA into a PKCS12 keystore using OpenSSL you would execute a command like: openssl pkcs12 -export -in mycert.crt -inkey mykey.key -out mycert.p12 -name tomcat -CAfile myCA.crt -caname root -chain For more advanced cases, consult the OpenSSL documentation. To create a new JKS keystore from scratch, containing a single self-signed Certificate, execute the following from a terminal command line: Unix:
