The system administrator is responsible for the following:
Configuring message security providers on the Application Server.
Managing user databases.
Managing keystore and truststore files.
Installing the sample. This is only done if the xms sample application is used to demonstrate the use of message layer web services security.
A system administrator uses the Admin Console to manage server security settings and uses a command line tool to manage certificate databases. Certificates and private keys are stored in key stores and are managed with keytool. If Network Security Services (NSS) is installed and you have selected the enterprise profile, certificates and private keys are stored in an NSS database, where they are managed using certutil. For information about profiles, see Usage Profiles in Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 Administration Guide. System administrator tasks are discussed in Chapter 10, Configuring Message Security, in Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 Administration Guide.
