    Winding Up SSL Implementation in Oracle Apps 11i
    Tuesday, October 31, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Today I am winding up SSL configuration in Apps with explanation, Check Previous Post on SSL at

    Overview of SSL in Apps
    Overview of SSL in Apps Web Server

    SSL Configuration on Web Server broad level Steps
    1.1 Create Certificates Using openssl (You can try OWM Oracle Wallet Manager as well)
    1.2 Change Context File parameters mentioned in previous post mentioned above
    1.3 run Autoconfig
    1.4 Test Application

    For detailed stesp by step guide for implementing SSL on E-Business Suite follow Metalink Note # 123718.1 11i: A Guide to Understanding and Implementing SSL for Oracle Applications
    Above note covers SSL for Web Server , Form Server & Database Server , In typical Implementation you can configure SSL just to web server Node.

    Few Important Note/Points w.r.t. SSL

    SSL with Multiple Middle Tier
    1. If you have multiple middle tier like server1, server2 ..serverN with load balancer infront of them & assume load balancer & assume that you access your apps via URL which means ServerName in httpd.conf will have value and while generating SSL under create CSR (Certificate Signing Request)phase Common Name should be same as ServerName in httpd.conf
    2. You can use same Certificates as long as ServerName in httpd.conf are same

    Cloning SSL Instances
    If you are cloning already configured SSL to Target Instance, you need to create new Certificates on Target Instance. If target Instance was previously configured with SSL before cloning take a backup of SSL certificates (By Default certificates are in $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/certs/apache ssl.crt & ssl.key) and replace them after cloning.

    If you are not sure about location of Certificates , check following directive in Context File ( *.xml file )

    Performance with SSL
    Yes, there be little bit performance degradation with SSL as server take some time to encrypt & decrypt messages/packets between Client & Server but there will not be big performance degradation. If you can't afford performance hits because of SSL you can use
    SSL Accelerators

      You can save yourself a lot of trouble by putting hardware Proxy/SSL-accelerator in front of your midtier.

      Can you elaborate on trouble ?

      Yes SSL accelerator will improve performance on SSL enabled web tier but there is additioanl cost associated with SSL accelerators

    • At 5:57 PM, Anonymous Vitaliy said…

      Changing SSL certs every time you clone. Dealing with expired SSL certs. Dealing with SSL related security bugs.

      While ORACLE APPS has built-in SSL functionality it's not the only and not the best solution out there.

      Hardware SSL-accelerator/Proxy can do a much better job on all counts.

      Seems like interesting comments Vitaliy, And nice guide Atul

    • At 5:40 PM, Blogger Shekhar said…

      Hi Atul,

      We made our EBS as SSL enable. After SSL we are not able to book Sales order giving error "Configuration validation resulted in error(s)"
      According to me some profile is not set correct that's why its giving error. If anyone has SSL enable instance please let me what will be the value of these two:

      profile : "BOM:Configurator URL of UI Manager"

      select value from cz_db_settings where setting_id='AltBatchValidateURL';

      Now we have,

      SQL> select value from cz_db_settings where setting_id='AltBatchValidateURL';


      Note : we have imported the certificate by wallet manager.

      Thanks in advance..
