4.4 Managing the SSL Certificates of Oracle Internet Directory and Connected Directories

The Oracle directory integration and provisioning server can use SSL to connect to Oracle Internet Directory and connected directories. When using SSL with no authentication to connect to Oracle Internet Directory, no certificate is required. However, when connecting to connect to Oracle Internet Directory using SSL with server authentication, you need a trust point certificate to connect to the LDAP server. The Oracle directory integration and provisioning server expects the certificate to be in a wallet, which is a data structure used to store and manage security credentials for an individual entity. Oracle Wallet Manager is an application that wallet owners and security administrators use to manage and edit the security credentials in their wallets.

The location of the wallet and the password to open it are stored in a properties file used by Directory Integration and Provisioning. This file is $ORACLE_HOME/ldap/odi/conf/

A typical file has the entries described in Table 4-2. You must update the file with values that are appropriate to your deployment.

Oracle Identity Management User Reference

As an example, an file can look like this:

RegWalletFile:  /private/myhost/orahome/ldap/odi/conf
CertWalletFile:  /private/myhost/orahome/ldap/dipwallet
CertWalletPwdFile: /private/myhost/orahome/ldap/

In the preceding example, the file locations are absolute path names. In this example, the wallet file ewallet.p12 is located in the directory /private/myhost/orahome/ldap/dipwallet.
