When you create a domain, you can enable options to configure security in the domain.
You can configure secure communication for the following domain components:
Administrator tool. Configure a secure HTTPS connection for the Administrator tool. During installation, you can provide the keystore file to use for the HTTPS connection.
Service Manager. Configure a secure connection between the Service Manager and other domain services. During installation, you can provide keystore and truststore files containing SSL certificates that you want to use.
Domain configuration repository. You can secure the domain configuration repository with SSL protocol. During installation, you can provide the truststore file containing the SSL certificate that you want to use.
Determine the level of security that you want to configure for the domain components. If you decide to configure security for the domain, you must know the location and password for the keystore and truststore files.
