SSL Certificates

Its recommended to use of a certificate from a public Certificate Authority (CA) included in the JDK/JRE list of recognized CAs. However, a self-signed certificate can also be used. Self-signed certificates require the signing CA’s key be installed on any machine that uses the application in question for certificate validation. If the CA key for the self-signed certificate is not installed on a machine where someone is attempting to use the application in question, communication will not be allowed.
