This section only applies when Access Manager itself is running SSL. By default, the agent installed on a remote Sun Java System Web Proxy Server 4.0 instance will trust any server certificate presented over SSL by the Access Manager host. The web agent does not check the root Certificate Authority (CA) certificate. If the Access Manager host is SSL-enabled and you want the agent to perform certificate checking, adhere to the guidelines as described in the following subsections:
The following property in the web agent AMAgent.properties configuration file controls the agent’s trust behavior, which by default it is set to true:
With this property set to true, the web agent does not perform certificate checking. On Linux systems, enabling the agent to perform certificate checking is a one-step process that only involves setting this property to false as illustrated in the following task.
Set the following property in the web agent AMAgent.properties configuration file to false as follows:
com.sun.am.trust_server_certs = false
The root CA certificate you install on the remote instance of Sun Java System Web Proxy Server 4.0 must be the same one that is installed on the Access Manager host.
