§Configuring WS SSL
Play WS allows you to set up HTTPS completely from a configuration file, without the need to write code. It does this by layering the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) with a configuration layer and with reasonable defaults.
§Table of Contents
The Play WS configuration is based on Typesafe SSLConfig.
For convenience, a table of contents to SSLConfig is provided:
- Quick Start to WS SSL
- Generating X.509 Certificates
- Configuring Trust Stores and Key Stores
- Configuring Protocols
- Configuring Cipher Suites
- Configuring Certificate Validation
- Configuring Certificate Revocation
- Configuring Hostname Verification
- Example Configurations
- Using the Default SSLContext
- Debugging SSL Connections
- Loose Options
- Testing SSL
NOTE: The links below are relative to
Typesafe SSLConfig, which uses the
ssl-configas a prefix for ssl properties.
Play uses the
play.ws.sslprefix, so that, for instance the
play.ws.ssl.loose.acceptAnyCertificatefor your play
JSSE is a complex product. For convenience, the JSSE materials are provided here:
