Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Administration Guide

Certificate Files

During Enterprise Server installation, a certificate is generated in Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) format suitable for internal testing. By default, Enterprise Server stores its certificate information in certificate databases in the domain-dir/config directory:

Keystore file

The key3.db file contains Enterprise Server certificate, including its private key. The keystore file is protected with a password.

Each keystore entry has a unique alias. After installation, the Enterprise Server keystore has a single entry with an alias of s1as.

Truststore file

The cert8.db file contains the Enterprise Server trusted certificates, including public keys for other entities. For a trusted certificate, the server has confirmed that the public key in the certificate belongs to the certificate's owner. Trusted certificates generally include those of CAs.

By default, Enterprise Server is configured with a keystore and truststore that will work with the example applications and for development purposes.
