The system administrator is responsible for:
Configuring message security providers on the Application Server.
Managing user databases.
Managing keystore and truststore files.
Configuring a Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) provider if using encryption and running a version of the Java SDK prior to version 1.5.0.
Installing the samples server. This is only done if the xms sample application will be used to demonstrate the use of message layer web services security.
A system administrator uses the Administration Console to manage server security settings and uses a command line tool to manage certificate databases. In Platform Edition, certificates and private keys are stored in key stores and are managed with keytool. Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition store certificates and private keys in an NSS database, where they are managed using certutil. This document is intended primarily for system administrators. For an overview of message security tasks, see Configuring the Application Server for Message Security.
