SSL sockets utilize several default
options, including the protocol version used (TLS 1.0, which also
supports SSL 3.0) and the default key and trust managers. If you want
to change any of these options, you must use an instance of the
com.sun.net.ssl.SSLContext). This is often
necessary, although it moves us away from a strictly
protocol-independent socket factory paradigm.
SSLContext class is an
engine class; it provides the following
Obtain an SSL context that implements the given protocol, optionally by consulting only the given provider. In Sun’s implementation of JSSE, the protocol must be TLS, TLSv1, SSL, or SSLv3. Since later versions of the protocol can support earlier versions, the string TLS provides the most generic instance of an SSL context.
If the given algorithm cannot be found, a
NoSuchAlgorithmException is thrown. If the given
provider cannot be found, a
NoSuchProviderException is thrown.
Return the protocol supported by this context.
Return the provider that supplied the implementation of this context.
Initialize this context with the given key managers, ...
