Steps to Configure SSL on Tomcat and Setup Auto Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS
Secured Socket Layer (SSL) is the cryptography protocol to provide message security over the internet. It works on the notion of Private and Public keys and messages are encrypted before sending it over the network.

For production environment, you should get the digital certificate from SSL certificate providers, for example, Verisign or Entrust.
