    Default using SSL in java applications

    Hi all

    I don't know if I would call myself an advanced java developer. I wish we had an intermediate forum

    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?

    Oh awesome and it has been integrated into the JRE since 1.4.

    Excellent. Thank you very much for this.

    I'm going to go familiarise myself with it's capabilities.

    I will keep the thread open in case I have any further questions but this looks like exactly what I was looking for.

    Well, SSL is secure socket layer and jsse is java secure socket extensions, so, yeah, that's what you're looking for (if what you are looking to do is to secure communication channels). If you are looking to do SSH type stuff (such as executing commands on remote machines, logging into remote machines, etc, etc) then see JSCH or SSH2, both of which are third party ssh libraries.

    Obviously my primary concern is that I want the communications to be relatively secure. As secure as one can practically hope to have a resource that is on the Internet.

    I essentially want to be able to upload files to a server, execute some java applications on the server (simple batch processes that don't need constant user interaction... just start a process and let it run) and connect to a mysql server. I might actually need SSH now that I look at that list of requirements.

    Thanks again for the guidance. Really appreciated.
