You can secure RMI communications by transmitting them over SSL. The Oracle ATG Web Commerce platform includes a class,, for creating secure sockets for RMI, and a Nucleus component that is an instance of this class, /atg/dynamo/service/socket/
. To enable RMI over SSL, set the RMISocketFactory property of the /atg/dynamo/server/RmiInitialization component to point to the SSLRMISocketFactory component:


To use RMI over SSL, configure public and private keys and wrap the public key in a self-signed certificate. Use the keytool utility to generate a new private key and public key, and wrap the public key into a new self-signed certificate.

For more information about SSL keys and certificates, and for documentation about the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) APIs, see the Oracle Web site.
