Summary: this page explains how to modify your Tomcat application server to enable the use of the https protocol when interacting with the following CAST web applications:

|The above mentioned CAST web applications will work with either the http or https protocols without any further configuration changes.|
CAST highly recommends the use of a trusted CA (Certificate Authority) SSL certificate when configuring Apache Tomcat for secure https access. You can use a self-signed SSL certificate, however, it is not recommended since unpredictable results may occur when using CAST AIP web applications with this type of certificate.
