I'll provide you with an example of a mini-HTTPS server and Java clients that support SSL. I'll then show you how to setup a bi-directional SSL scheme where clients authenticate servers and servers authenticate clients.

    Networked applications, by their very nature, require close attention to security. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol was developed by Netscape in 1994 as a common solution to client-server communication security issues. SSL supports a flexible client-server authentication scheme and provides for algorithm-independent encrypted client-server communication. SSL runs as a layer between the Transport Control Protocol (TCP) and application layer protocols, such as HTTP and SMTP.
