The attached document covers the configuration of SSL Acceptors in SonicMQ 7.5.1 for the purpose of encrypting messages between the JMS client and the Sonic Broker. The step-by-step instructions walk through each of the steps, including generating a certificate request to applying for a Public and Private key pair from VeriSign and then installing and configuring the SSL certificate to your Sonic Server. This example uses VeriSign for demonstration purposes, but other Certifying Authorities exist, and you should check with your customer for a preferred vendor. Some of the well known CA's are:
Progress clients need SSL because...
