This is a text description of ano81017.gif, which describes an example of how SSL secures connections between Oracle and non-Oracle entities, beginning over the internet and proceeding to an Oracle server. In this example, a web server runs as an Oracle9i java client. It receives messages over HTTPS (HTTP secured by SSL), and sends CORBA requests to the Oracle server via a servlet over IIOP/SSL (IIOP secured by SSL). In this example the web server passes its own certificate, and not the web client's, to the Oracle server.
