Enable SSL for AEM author instance

Accessing site over https is must. AEM has capability to access entire site or few pages https.

There are two ways to access site or pages by https:
  • Using OSGI service Apache Felix Jetty Based Http service. (To access entire instance using https).
  • Using crxde, manually creating nodes. (To access few pages using https).

Create credential for SSL development



Use the Java keytool to create a self-signed credential and to store it in a keystore file. The following procedure uses a single command that includes all of the information needed to create the keystore. For complete information about the command, see the Oracle Java SE Documentation.


  1. Create a directory named ssl in the directory where the quickstart JAR file is located.
  2. In the command prompt, type the following command to create the credential and keystore:
keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -validity 3650 -alias cqse
 -keystore [quickstart_dir]/ssl/keystorename.keystore  -keypass key_password 
-storepass  storepassword -dname "CN=Host Name, OU=Group Name, 
O=Company Name,L=City Name, S=State, C=Country_ Code"
