Issue/Introduction

We are currently installing APACHE TOMCAT Rel 15.0, coded the following parms:

IJO="-Dfile.encoding=ISO8859-1"
IJO="$IJO -Dcatalina.base=${CATALINA_BASE}"
IJO="$IJO -Dcatalina.home=${CATALINA_HOME}"
IJO="$IJO -Djava.io.tmpdir=${CATALINA_BASE}/temp"
IJO="$IJO -Dibm.serversocket.recover=true"
IJO="$IJO -Dlog.dir=${CATALINA_BASE}/logs"
IJO="$IJO -Djava.endorsed.dirs="
IJO="${IJO}${CATALINA_HOME}/common/endorsed"
IJO="$IJO -Dconnector.ssl.port=8008"
IJO="$IJO -Dconnector.address=199.74.224.109"
IJO="$IJO -Dderby.system.home=${CATALINA_BASE}/../../derby"
IJO="$IJO -Xshareclasses:cacheDir=${CATALINA_BASE}/javasharedresources"
IJO="$IJO -Xms128m -Xmx512m"
IJO="$IJO -Xshareclasses:nonfatal"
IJO="$IJO -Dhttps.protocols=TLSv1.2"

Do these parms ENABLE ENCRYPTION or do other  parms need to be added ?  

Cause

Customization to enable functionality.

Environment

Release : 15.0

Component : CCS APACHE ACTIVEMQ

Resolution

The given connector statement in the XML should enable encryption.

Within the Tomcat joblog, check that  port number, 8008, is active.  Once confirmed, connect to the application listening at 8008 using the web browser. This will  indicate that the connection is secure.
