You must obtain the SMTP server certificate to complete this task.
To configure SSL for the SMTP server using Fusion Middleware Control:

Connection Security: Select an option, other fields may become active afterward.
Specify CA certificate source: Select Directory or File.
CA certificate directory: Specify the directory containing CA certificates.
CA certificate file: Specify the file name for the CA certificate.
SSL certificate verification depth: Specify the verification level applied to the certificate.
SSL cipher list: Specify the list of ciphers matching the cipher suite name that the SMTP server supports. For example, RSA+RC4+SHA.
If you are configuring multiple authenticators, and have configured an additional LDAP Authenticator to communicate over SSL (one-way SSL only), you need to put the corresponding LDAP server's root certificate in an additional keystore used by the virtualization (libOVD) functionality.
To configure SSL when using multiple authenticators:
Before completing this task, you must configure the custom property called
virtualize (lower case), and set its value to
true (for more information, see Configuring Identity Store Virtualization Using Fusion Middleware Control).
Create the keystore:
Set environment variables ORACLE_HOME, WL_HOME and JAVA_HOME.
For example (on UNIX):
Set up the keystore by running libovdconfig.sh (on UNIX), or libovdconfig.bat (on Windows), using -createKeystore option.
For example, on UNIX, open a shell prompt and change the directory to <OracleHome>/oracle_common/bin. Then, run the following command (which prompts for the Oracle Business Intelligence administrator user name and password), for example:
libovdconfig.sh -host <hostname
> -port <Admin_Server_Port> -userName <BI Admin User> -domainPath <OracleHome>/
When prompted, enter the Oracle Business Intelligence administrator password, and the OVD Keystore password (a new password that will be used to secure a Keystore file), created by the libovdconfig.sh -createKeystore command.
Once this command runs, you should see two new credentials in the Credential Store and a new Keystore file called adapters.jks under <OracleHome>/user_projects/domains/bi/config/fmwconfig/ovd/default.
Export the root certificate from the LDAP directory (refer to your LDAP documentation on how to do this).
Import the root certificate to the libOVD keystore using the keytool command:
<OracleHome>/jdk/jre/bin/keytool -import -keystore <OracleHome>
/user_projects/domains/bi/config/fmwconfig/ovd/default/adapters.jks -storepass <KeyStore password
> -alias <alias of your choice
> -file <Certificate filename
Restart WebLogic Server and Oracle Business Intelligence processes.
