I was recently asked to work on https on my local environment of AEM. Since i am using windows, i had a little bit of trouble configuring SSL.
I was following this article http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/deploying/config-ssl.html to configure SSL over the developer environment. Please see that since it is just a dev environment you don’t need a trust store hence only follow the steps for developer environment.
The only problem was the parameter below
Now, this parameter uses absolute path and not relative. So my windows settings were akin to below. The ssl directory was placed alongside the crx-quickstart and the jar file. It is very easy to configure SSL. For linux the path can changes to /opt/abc/ssl/cqkeystore.keystore
