using SSL in java applications
I don't know if I would call myself an advanced java developer. I wish we had an intermediate forum :P:
Forgive me if this has been addressed before but I can't seem to find a suitable set of search terms to track down any previous SSL threads.
Anyway up until now I've only ever run my apps across local networks with no need for encryption or anything. In the past I've used open-SSH for other things and I'm keen to use SSL again. I've started looking into it now but I thought it best to approach the knowledgeable folks on this forum initially to get some guidance.
Are there any pre-existing standard java libraries that I can utilise? If so are there any tutorials you can direct me to?
