Can you run Retain with SSL

I've been looking through the documentation. I can't find any references to running Retain with SSL. It seems like a very significant security vulnerability to run without encryption. I know I can put a certificate on Apache, that's plain enough. But Retain is mostly running on Tomcat. It doesn't appear to need need Apache except to redirect. Am I missing something?

Thanks

Re: Can you run Retain with SSL

Yes, you can run it with SSL. As you already mentioned you can put a certificate on Apache. This will secure the web interface with SSL. To secure Tomcat with SSL is only needed if you want to secure the communication between the different Retain components like the Retain Server, Worker, StubbingServer and so on.

Our Knowledge Base provides some information on how to do it for Tomcat as well as Apache.

The following articles do explain how it could be done for Tomcat on Windows (https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7020291) and Linux (https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7020293).
