Files and Artifacts Generated by RREG

The files that get generated by the RREG Tool vary, depending on the security level you are using for communications between the WebGate and the Oracle Access Manager server. See Securing Communication Between OAM Servers and WebGates in Administrator's Guide for Oracle Access Management.

Note that in this topic any references to RREG_HOME should be replaced with the path to the directory where you ran the RREG tool. This is typically the following directory on the Oracle Access Manager server, or (if you are using out-of-band mode) the directory where you unpacked the RREG archive:


The following table lists the artifacts that are always generated by the RREG Tool, regardless of the Oracle Access Manager security level.

File Location
  • RREG_HOME/output/Agent_ID/ - For WebGate 12c .

  • RREG_HOME/output/Agent_ID/wallet - For WebGate 12c and OHS 12c.

ObAccessClient.xml RREG_HOME/output/Agent_ID/

The following table lists the additional files that are created if you are using the SIMPLE or CERT security level for Oracle Access Manager:

File Location
aaa_key.pem RREG_HOME/output/Agent_ID/
aaa_cert.pem RREG_HOME/output/Agent_ID/
password.xml RREG_HOME/output/Agent_ID/

Note that the password.xml file contains the obfuscated global passphrase to encrypt the private key used in SSL. This passphrase can be different than the passphrase used on the server.

You can use the files generated by RREG to generate a certificate request and get it signed by a third-party Certification Authority. To install an existing certificate, you must use the existing aaa_cert.pem and aaa_chain.pem files along with password.xml and aaa_key.pem.
