Welcome to Secure Socket Layer Space
To use SSL, the AS Java must possess a key pair which consists of a public key (distributed using a X.509 public-key certificate) and a corresponding private key. To use a key pair for SSL, the public key of the AS Java key pair must be certified by a well known Certification Authority (CA) that clients using SSL trust. Therefore, you create a certificate signing request (CSR) that you then send to the CA of your choice. After receiving the CSR, the CA returns the corresponding signed public-key certificate in the form of a certificate request response, which you then import into the key pair for which you created the request.
