Configuring Java CAPS for SSL Support

Importing the Certificate

If you are using a self-signed certificate or a certificate signed by a CA that your browser does not recognize, a dialog box will appear the first time you try to access the server. You can then choose to trust the certificate for this session only or permanently.

ProcedureTo Import the Certificate

  1. Enter the following command to install the certificate:

    keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias CAPS -file ca-certificate-filename 
    -keystore keystore_filename

    Note –

    You must have the required permissions to modify the JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts file. You must import your certificate into the cacerts file also.

    If you want to use a keystore, it is recommended to use the sbyn.keystore file in the JavaCAPS-install-dir/repository/repository/server directory.
