Configure DLM Engine for TLS with a self-signed certificate
You can enable SSL for the DLM Engine using a self-signed certificate. Self-signed certificates are primarily used in test environments. For a production environment, you should use a certificate from a trusted CA.
- Log in as root user on the cluster with DLM Engine installed.
Generate a key pair and keystore for use with DLM Engine.
keytool -genkey -alias jetty -keystore <certificate_file_path> -storepass <keystore_password> -dname 'CN=beacon.host.com, OU=Eng, O=ABC Corp, L=Santa Clara, ST=CA, C=US' -keypass <key_password>Follow the prompts and enter the required information.
- CN must be the FQDN of the DLM Engine host
- Default value for the key password is password.
If you change the password then you have to update the DLM configuration.
keytool -genkey -alias jetty -keystore ~/tmp/ks -storepass password What is your first and last name? [Unknown]: beacon.host.com What is the name of your organizational unit?

[no]: yes Enter key password for <jetty> (RETURN if same as keystore password):
Export the certificate.
