This article provides sample Webservice and Webservice Client for two way SSL. It also demonstrates the use of WLSSSLAdapter class to send certificates to the server.

1. Create a JWS with the following policy  : Wssp1.2-2007-Https-ClientCertReq.xml


package examples.webservices.security_jws;

import weblogic.jws.WLHttpTransport;
import weblogic.jws.Policies;
import weblogic.jws.Policy;
import javax.jws.WebService;
import javax.jws.WebMethod;
import javax.jws.soap.SOAPBinding;




@Policy(uri = "policy:Wssp1.2-2007-Https-ClientCertReq.xml")

public class SecureHelloWorldImpl {

  public String sayHello(String s) {
    return "Hello " + s;  

2. Build and Deploy the service on WebLogic Server

3. Deploy a war file with the following jsp in another server.

<title>WS Client App</title>
<body bgcolor="#cccccc">
<h2>Protected Page</h2>

<%@ page import="examples.webservices.security_jws.client.SecureHelloWorldService"%>
<%@ page import="examples.webservices.security_jws.client.SecureHelloWorldService_Impl"%>
<%@ page import="examples.webservices.security_jws.client.SecureHelloWorldPortType"%>

<%@ page import="javax.xml.rpc.Stub"%>
<%@ page import="weblogic.wsee.connection.transport.https.WlsSSLAdapter"%>
<%@ page import=""%>
<%@ page import=""%>

    String wsdl = "https://localhost:7002/SecureHelloWorldService/SecureHelloWorldService?WSDL";
    //SecureHelloWorldService service = new SecureHelloWorldService_Impl(wsdl);
    SecureHelloWorldService service = new SecureHelloWorldService_Impl();
    SecureHelloWorldPortType port = service.getSecureHelloWorldServicePort();

    WlsSSLAdapter adapter = new WlsSSLAdapter();
    adapter.setKeystore("C://WSSecurity//LABS//twoway_jws//identity.jks","mystorepass".toCharArray(), "JKS" );
    adapter.setTrustManager( new TrustManager(){
                 public boolean certificateCallback(X509Certificate[] chain, int validateErr){
                   return true;

   weblogic.wsee.connection.transport.https.HttpsTransportInfo info = new  weblogic.wsee.connection.transport.https.HttpsTransportInfo(adapter);
   Stub stub = (Stub)port;
   stub._setProperty("weblogic.wsee.client.ssladapter", adapter);

catch (Exception e)
out.println("File input error"+e);



4. Configure SSL on the server on which client app is deployed.

5. On the server on which the service is deployed , do the 2 way SSL configuration.

a) Go to Home >Summary of Servers > YourServer > SSL > Advanced >
Two Way Client Cert Behavior: Client Certs Requested and Enforced
Hostname Verification: None

b) Go to Home >Summary of Security Realms >myrealm >Providers >DefaultIdentityAsserter

Under Common

Chosen Select X509

Under Provider Specific

Trusted Client Principals: <CN of the client’s certificate>
Default User Name Mapper Attribute Type: CN
Use Default User Name Mapper: Checked

c) Create a user in the security realm with the CN value of the certificate.

6) Import the client’s public certificate in the trust store of the server.

Disable SSL V2, Weak Ciphers, and Null Encryptions

You can use the following jvm options to disable Weak Ciphers.

Steps to disable SSL V2 follows later.

Use Secure Cookies to Prevent Session Stealing

Please refer to this article : link

Configure WebLogic Server to use a Specific Cipher Suite or a List of Ciphers

Please refer to this article : link,TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5

Restrict the SSL Protocol Versions Allowed by WebLogic Server

Please refer to this article : link

You should also allow only the required http methods ( GET/POST) to access the resource on the server. You can restrict other methods from the web.xml
