Server: Administration: Keystores
Buttons Configuration Options
Keystores ensure the secure storage and management of private keys and trusted certificate authorities (CAs). This page lets you view and define various keystore configurations. These settings help you to manage the security of message transmissions.
WebLogic Server is configured with a default identity keystore (
DemoIdentity.jks) and a default trust keystore (
DemoTrust.jks). In addition, WebLogic Server trusts the CA certificates in the JDK
cacertsfile. This default keystore configuration is appropriate for testing and development purposes. However, these keystores should not be used in a production environment.
After you configure identity and trust keystores for a WebLogic Server instance, you can configure its SSL attributes. These attributes include information about the identity and trust location for particular server instances. Use the Administration: SSL page to specify this information.
For purposes of backward compatibility, WebLogic Server lets you store private keys and trusted certificates authorities in files or in the WebLogic Keystore provider. If you use either of these mechanisms for identity and trust, choose the Files or Keystore Providers (Deprecated) option on the Administration: SSL page.
Note: When using the WebLogic Keystore provider, digital certificates are stored in files.
Name Description Change
Changes the keystore configuration used for this server.
Name Description Keystores
Which configuration rules should be used for finding the server's identity and trust keystores?
Name Description Demo Identity Keystore
The path and file name of the demo identity keystore.
Demo Identity Keystore Type
The type of the demo identity keystore. Generally, this is
JKS; if left blank, it defaults to
Demo Identity Keystore Passphrase
The demo identity keystore's encrypted passphrase. If empty or null, then the keystore will be opened without a passphrase.
Name Description Demo Trust Keystore
The path and file name of the demo trust keystore.
Demo Trust Keystore Type
The type of the demo trust keystore. Generally, this is
JKS; if left blank, it defaults to
Demo Trust Keystore Passphrase
The demo trust keystore's encrypted passphrase. If empty or null, then the keystore will be opened without a passphrase.
Java Standard Trust Keystore
The path and file name of the trust keystore.
Java Standard Trust Keystore Type
The type of the keystore. Generally, this is
Java Standard Trust Keystore Passphrase
The password for the Java Standard Trust keystore. This password is defined when the keystore is created.
If empty or null, then the keystore will be opened without a passphrase.
This attribute is only used if KeyStores is CUSTOM_IDENTITY_AND_JAVA_STANDARD_TRUST or DEMO_IDENTITY_AND_DEMO_TRUST.
When you get the value of this attribute, WebLogic Server does the following:
Retrieves the value of the
Decrypts the value and returns the unencrypted password as a String.
When you set the value of this attribute, WebLogic Server does the following:
Encrypts the value.
Sets the value of the
JavaStandardTrustKeyStorePassPhraseEncryptedattribute to the encrypted value.
Using this attribute (
JavaStandardTrustKeyStorePassPhrase) is a potential security risk because the String object (which contains the unencrypted password) remains in the JVM's memory until garbage collection removes it and the memory is reallocated. Depending on how memory is allocated in the JVM, a significant amount of time could pass before this unencrypted data is removed from memory.
Instead of using this attribute, use
Confirm Java Standard Trust Keystore Passphrase
Confirms the passphrase for the Java Standard Trust Keystore.
