Testing with SSL

To provide secure connections between clients and servers during testing, you can use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology supported by HCL OneTest™ API.
The following concepts are involved:
Identity store
A container for a Java™ KeyStore (.jks extension). A KeyStore can hold digital certificates, private keys, or both.
One-way and two-way authorization
One-way authorization requires the server to provide a valid certificate at connection time. In two-way authorization, the client must also provide a valid certificate.
HTTP proxy server
HCL OneTest API provides a proxy server to take the place of the live system. When you use the proxy server, HCL OneTest API can generate a server certificate that can be used in testing.
