    Is this one-way or two-way SSL?

    See if these resources help you. Let us know.

    wooda20 created a nice description discussion here: Of SSL, Java and DevTest   see if this helps.

    abrsh01 explored SSL and TLS here: https://communities.ca.com/message/241877391?commentID=241877391#comment-241877391 

    Some docops info located here.: SSL Assets - DevTest Solutions - 10.0 - CA Technologies Documentation 

    And, Oracle provides some information here: Debugging SSL/TLS connections
