  1. Create Java KeyStore (JKS) and generate key
  2. Generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)
  3. Send the CSR file to CA to issue the certificate
  4. Import Certificates (Root, Intermediate(if any) & Server)
  5. Configure SSL in WebLogic Server
    • Change KeyStore type in WebLogic Server
    • Specify path of Identity KeyStore and Trust KeyStore
    • Specify Private Key Alias in WebLogic Server
    • Enable SSL in WebLogic Server
  6. Test SSL
