comment Setting up SSL for tomcat
Backslashes have bitten me so often that my first guess is always to make sure they're not interpreted as escape sequence - use forward slashes for directory separators, they work well in Java on Windows. Then report back. (you yourself are reporting both 'C:\Users\Dan\.keystore' and 'C:\Users\Dan.keystore' in your question)

comment Running Apache Tomcat 8 on port 80
You're right - I've mentioned it due to "nothing else being involved". I'll reorder my answer. In fact, I'm so strongly preferring the reverse proxy solution that I am only aware of jsvc, but have never considered using it myself. And thinking more about it than yesterday when I quickly answered this question, iptables is yet another option

comment Unable to link IIS8 and Tomcat7 by ISAPI on Windows Server 2012
The answer is old, but maybe you (or someone) still is puzzled on why localhost sometimes is working and sometimes it isn't: These days it's often aliased to ::1, which is the IPV6 version of localhost. If a server only answers on IPV4, naturally you can't reach it. Happy 20th birthday to IPV6.

comment Using TLS 1.2 and java 6
ok, now I get it: Your web application will connect to some other application and needs to talk TLS 1.2... Not sure if such a workaround is worth going after. Establishing a proxy - either a newer Java-version or OpenSSL will certainly increase complexity, lower maintainability and introduce many opportunities for getting it wrong and making the whole system less secure than expected with a newer version of the protocol. Good luck is all I can say. I'd strongly opt for the upgrade of the current application. Any effort there reduces complexity, rather than increase it.

Do you mean that Tomcat needs to actually see the 1.2 connection or is it enough to terminate TLS on Apache?

Can you post links to the other places where you already asked? This way one could see what else you already tried or if it's been solved already.

comment How can I ensure Liferay uses TLS for authentication
I'll take a look at what other options there are for future implementations. Especially because you'll have to establish some trust to the other side - otherwise encryption is useless: Having an encrypted connection to a man-in-the-middle doesn't buy you anything.
