Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2015) Let's replace JKS to PKCS12 key store type
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2006 15:54:35 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2015?page=comments#action_12442944 ] 
            
Vamsavardhana Reddy commented on GERONIMO-2015:
-----------------------------------------------

I have written a simple java class to translate a JKS keystore to PKCS12 keystore.  The class
would iterate thru all key entries in JKS keystore and call setKeyEntry on the PKCS12 keystore.
Then it will iterate thru all certificate entries in the JKS keystore and call setCertificateEntry()
on the PKCS12 keystore.  The Exception I logged above means that setCertificateEntry() on
a PKCS12 keystore is not supported in Sun JDK 142.  To reproduce the exception, invoke setCertificateEntry()
method on a PKCS12 keystore KeyStore object in Sun JDK 1.4.2.

> Hello
> Let's replace JKS to PKCS12 key store type; because PKCS12 is widely used key store and
Geronimo may not work on non-Sun VMs.
> To fix this problem I have created the patch for Geronimo sources.
> In brief the patch (attached) replaces JKS to PKCS12 key store type in configurations
files. 
> PKCS12 format of key store file is not java-specific and can be created and read by other
programs, e.g. Internet Explorer. In addition PKCS12 exists in Bouncy Castle (http://www.bouncycastle.org)
security provider, while JKS is Sun specific key store and does not exist in Bouncy Castle.
> Also it is needed to replace JKS to PKCS12 keystore file (attached) to assemblies/j2ee-tomcat-server/src/var/security,
assemblies/j2ee-installer/src/var/security, assemblies/j2ee-jetty-server/src/var/security
directories. Key store file was generating using JKSToPKCS12 class (attached). This class
transfers key and certificate of Geronimo from JKS to PKCS12.
> After I apply this patch to Geronimo 1.0 sources and build Geronimo I can login to Geronimo
console over https.
