SSL Certificate - Recommendations

Posted on 2005-04-20

I am looking for some advice concerning SSL Certificates with Tomcat/JSP.  I have searched the web for answers, but I have received conflicting replies - so I turn to you my resident experts for some expert advice.

We have our site hosted on a Third Party Server and the site is based on Tomcat/JSP.  We are looking to implement SSL Certificate as some information that the user is providing is sensitive etc.  Our questions are:

1) What makes a good certificate - i.e. what are the key things to look out for when selecting to buy Comodo or Verisign?? (apart from price)
2) What are the best practices for implementing it.  e.g.Have a different web application dealing with secure data? Have a seperate subdomain?
3) Anyone have any good links for SSL with Tomcat/JSP? i.e. Idiots guide.

Thanks in advance.

    I was also asking the similar questions regarding SSL in Tomcat this morning and one expert has a very good reply to me - aozarov. You can look at my thread though. I think that you need to know about JSSE.
