LAMUM Windows HTTPS / SSL / TLS Conversions
This document presents recommended steps to convert LAMUM software to operate in a secure environment. These chiefly entail reconfiguration to the two web servers (Apache and Apache Tomcat) which support the LAM and UM components, such that they “speak” to the end user’s browser over Industry standard secure (encrypted) data transfer protocol(s) best known by the acronyms HTTPS (secure http), SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), and TLS (Transport Layer Security), all of which refer to the same technology. We’ll use TLS to refer to this in this document where necessary. It includes a listing of configuration and application files and their locations, recommended changes to each, and reference to two key web resources which we used to guide our conversion effort.
