Before you begin
Understand the role of certificates in identity and trust, as described in Identity and Trust and Configuring Identity and Trust.
A Certification Path provider completes and validates certificate chains by using trusted CA based checking. The provider checks the signatures in the chain, ensures that the chain has not expired, and confirms that one of the certificates in the chain is issued by one of the server’s trusted CAs. If any of these checks fail, the chain is not valid. Optionally, the provider checks the certificate chain’s basic constraints.
WebLogic Server includes the following Certification Path providers:
