To setup up just ssl between BSM and myMO so that you can do communicate via SSL such as
1) Instructions to create and apply a self-signed certificate to enable Java Web Start in secure mode:
1 Stop the server.
2 Move the cursor to cd D://Managedobects/config
At a command prompt, enter: gencert -host
gencert.bat utility is located in the ManagedObjects/bin directory. It takes the option
-host, followed by the name of the host. The gencert.bat utility requires the J2SDK because
it relies on the keytool command line utility provided by Java. Use the host name, not the IP
A keystore and a certificate valid for testhost are generated. The keystore (keystore) and
certificate (keystore.cer) are stored in the directory from which the gencert command was
3 To import the newly created certificate keystore.cer to the Managed Objects Console, enter
the following command at a command prompt (where keytool is in your path):
MY Windows 7, I list CMD and run as admin, then
D:\ManagedObjects\config>keytool -import -v -alias -file keystore.cer -keypass changeit -keystore "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_17\jre\lib\security\cacerts" -storepass changeit

Signature algorithm name: SHA1withRSA
Version: 3
Trust this certificate? [no]: yes
Certificate was added to keystore

In another console,
D:\ManagedObjects\bin>keytool -v -list -keystore "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_17\jre\lib\security\cacerts"

4) D:\ManagedObjects\bin>cp keystore \myMO\server\conf
