I was reviewing your article on implementing HTTPS for Yellowfin here. Is it possible to do this with a signed certificate from a vendor?

Absolutely! This page includes some information on installing signed certificates into Tomcat. If you are able to convert your cert and key into a pfx file, you can point Tomcat to it directly!

This is done via the Connector parameters and would look something like this:


<Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
    maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
    keystoreFile="conf/signedCert.pfx"
    keystoreType="PKCS12"
    keystorePass="fromVendor"  />
Make sure that the cert is in the mentioned directory, and that the user Yellowfin runs as has permissions to read the file.
