Before you begin
Before configuring two-way SSL, ensure that the trust keystore for the server includes the certificate for the trusted certificate authority that signed the certificate for the client. See Configure identity and trust.
By default, WebLogic Server is configured to use one-way SSL (the server passes its identity to the client). When the server needs to authenticate the client, you use two-way SSL. In a two-way SSL connection, the client verifies the identity of the server and then passes its identity certificate to the server. The server then validates the identity certificate of the client before completing the SSL handshake. The server determines whether or not two-way SSL is used.
After you finish
All the server SSL attributes are dynamic; when modified via the Console, they cause the corresponding SSL server or channel SSL server to restart and use the new settings for new connections. Old connections will continue to run with the old configuration. To ensure that all the SSL connections exist according to the specified configuration, you must reboot WebLogic Server.
