Configuring the Server

Configuring the PostgreSQL server for SSL is covered in the main documentation , so it will not be repeated here. There are also instructions in the source certdir Before trying to access your SSL enabled server from Java, make sure you can get to it via psql . You should see output like the following if you have established a SSL connection.

$ ./bin/psql -h localhost -U postgres
psql (9.6.2)
SSL connection (protocol: TLSv1.2, cipher: ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384, bits: 256, compression: off)
