Subject: Using Rampart to send a proxy certificate and sign using a symmetric key
Date: Thu, 14 Mar 2013 08:59:15 +0000


I have a bit of a unique situation, I am writing an Axis2 client and have to follow a certain
procedure. I would like to use Rampart to do the following,

1- I have a proxy certificate issued by a server for me, this certificate has my username
and the server's public key, I would like to have rampart to send this certificate.

As far as I know, the samples only show how to have rampart use a certificate from a key store
MG>from the trust-store called cacerts
is there another way to do it?
MG>First step is to get the cert working to validate you to the external interface

2- I would like Rampart to sign the request using a Symmetric key. As far as I know, rampart
takes the key from a key store but I am not sure how to ask it to sign the request using this

Any help is greatly appreciated
