OpenEdge key and certificate stores

All OpenEdge server and client components that implement Secure HTTP (HTTPS) or Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections require access to private keys and digital certificates to negotiate these connections and to enable them to function securely.
For all OpenEdge components, OpenEdge provides utilities that allow you to install and manage keys and digital certificates (in key stores and certificate stores) so the components can use them. For Open Clients and Web services clients, OpenEdge provides utilities for some clients or relies on utilities provided by the client platform to manage the required certificate stores.
For more information on managing certificate stores for Open Clients and Web service clients, see OpenEdge Development: Open Client Introduction and Programming. For details about using the OpenEdge utilities to manage key stores for OpenEdge servers and manage certificate stores for OpenEdge clients, see Managing OpenEdge Key and Certificate Stores and Command and Utility Reference
