Questions:

I have a java web application deployed and running on tomcat server. Currently this application exposes some rest endpoints which needs to be consumed by a third party system. Third party system accepts only https endpoints for communication.
This java web application is deployed on a windows server accessing via IIS port forwarding with a fixed IP address.
How do I enable this application to be accessible over https endpoint so that third party can consume it? Need the typical steps in achieving this. I have heard of self signed certificate but that may not work for the third party system to consume.
I believe getting a domain name not required just for getting the app ssl enabled.
