Installing an SSL Certificate on a JBoss Server

Last updated: 2022-02-10 14:27:26


    This document describes how to install an SSL certificate on a JBoss server.


    • The certificate name cloud.tencent.com is used as an example.
    • JBoss 7.1.1 is used as an example.
    • The current server OS is CentOS 7. Detailed steps vary slightly with the OS.
    • Before you install an SSL certificate, enable port 443 on the JBoss server so that HTTPS can be enabled after the certificate is installed. For more information, see How Do I Enable Port 443 for a VM?
    • For more information about how to upload SSL certificate files to a server, please see Copying Local Files to CVMs.


    • A remote file copy tool such as WinSCP has been installed. Please download the latest version from the official website.
    • A remote login tool such as PuTTY or Xshell has been installed. Please download the latest version from the official website.
    • The JBoss service has been installed and configured on the current server.
    • The data required to install the SSL certificate includes the following:
      Name Remarks
      Server IP address IP address of the server, which is used to connect the PC to the server.
      Username The username used to log in to the server.
      Password The password used to log in to the server.

    • For a CVM instance purchased on the Tencent Cloud official website, log in to the CVM console to obtain the server IP address, username, and password.
    • If you have selected the Paste CSR method when applying for the SSL certificate, or your certificate brand is Wotrus, the option to download the JKS certificate file is not provided. Instead, you need to manually convert the format to generate a keystore as follows:
      • Access the conversion tool.
      • Upload the certificate and private key files in the Nginx folder to the conversion tool, enter the keystore password, click Submit, and convert the certificate to a .jks certificate.
    • The JBoss service is installed in the /usr/local directory.


    1. Log in to the SSL Certificate Service console, and click Download for the certificate you need to install.
    2. In the pop-up window, select JKS for the server type, click Download, and decompress the cloud.tencent.com certificate file package to the local directory.
      After decompression, you can get the certificate file of the corresponding type, which includes the cloud.tencent.com_jks folder.
      • Folder: cloud.tencent.com_jks
      • Files in the folder:
        • cloud.tencent.com.jks: keystore file
        • keystorePass.txt: password file (if you have set a private key password, this file will not be generated)
    3. Remotely log in to the JBoss server. For example, you can use PuTTY for remote login.
    4. In the /usr/local/jboss-7.1.1/standalone/configuration directory, run the mkdir cert command to create the cert folder.
    5. Use WinSCP (a tool for copying files between a local computer and a remote computer) to log in to the JBoss server and copy the keystore file cloud.tencent.com.jks from the local directory to the cert folder.
    6. In the /usr/local/jboss-7.1.1/standalone/configuration directory, change the port configuration and add certificate configuration in the standalone.xml file.
      • Part 1:
          <interface name="management">
              <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address.management:}"/>
               <!--Enable remote access-->
          <interface name="public">
              <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address:}"/>
          <interface name="unsecure">
              <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address.unsecure:}"/>
        <socket-binding-group name="standard-sockets" default-interface="public" port-offset="${jboss.socket.binding.port-offset:0}">
          <socket-binding name="management-native" interface="management" port="${jboss.management.native.port:9999}"/>
          <socket-binding name="management-http" interface="management" port="${jboss.management.http.port:9990}"/>
          <socket-binding name="management-https" interface="management" port="${jboss.management.https.port:9443}"/>
          <socket-binding name="ajp" port="8009"/>
               <!--Change the HTTP port-->
          <socket-binding name="http" port="80"/>
               <!--Change the HTTPS port-->
          <socket-binding name="https" port="443"/>
          <socket-binding name="osgi-http" interface="management" port="8090"/>
          <socket-binding name="remoting" port="4447"/>
          <socket-binding name="txn-recovery-environment" port="4712"/>
          <socket-binding name="txn-status-manager" port="4713"/>
          <outbound-socket-binding name="mail-smtp">
              <remote-destination host="localhost" port="25"/>
        Changes required are as follows:
        • Enabling remote access: change ${jboss.bind.address:} to ${jboss.bind.address:}.
        • Changing the HTTP port: change port 8080 to 80.
        • Changing the HTTPS port: change port 8443 to 443.
      • Part 2: adding certificate configuration
        <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:web:1.1" default-virtual-server="default-host" native="false">
              <connector name="http" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="http" socket-binding="http"/>
           <connector name="https" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="https" socket-binding="https" secure="true">
                  <ssl name="https" password="******" certificate-key-file="../standalone/configuration/cert/cloud.tencent.com.jks" cipher-suite="TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA,TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA,TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,SSL_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA,SSL_DHE_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA,SSL_DHE_DSS_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA" protocol="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2"/>
              <virtual-server name="default-host" enable-welcome-root="true">
                  <alias name="localhost"/>
                  <alias name="example.com"/>
    7. Go to the /usr/local/jboss-7.1.1/bin directory and run the ./standalone.sh command to start the JBoss server.
    8. The certificate is deployed and you can access the server through https://cloud.tencent.com.
