Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3757) KeyStore type can't be changed
Date Fri, 25 Jan 2008 20:26:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-3757?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12562651#action_12562651

Vamsavardhana Reddy commented on GERONIMO-3757:
-----------------------------------------------

I thought it would be possible to determine the keystore type by trying to load the keystore
file with various keystore implementations available in the JVM.  After experimenting with
IBMJDK 1.5, Sun JDK 1.5 and Harmony 5.0 M4 JRE, it appears to me that either using default
keystore type or type based on file extension is the best option.  This is applicable to only
keystore files added directly to var/security/keystores directory.  The keystores created
using Keystores portlet need not have any extension in the name and can be of any type.

> For now (r612905), Geronimo is hardcoded to use JKS keystore type, which prevents Geronimo
from running on Harmony or other JDKs that have no JKS implementation:
> org.apache.geronimo.security.keystore.FileKeystoreInstance, line 635:
>             KeyStore tempKeystore = KeyStore.getInstance(JKS);
> org.apache.geronimo.security.keystore.FileKeystoreManager, line 364:
>             KeyStore keystore = KeyStore.getInstance(FileKeystoreInstance.JKS);
> To workaround this issue, one can change JKS to KeyStore.getDefaultType() (this returns
"BKS" for Harmony) or particular other keystore type, but this requires source recompilation.
Replacing var/security/keystores/geronimo-default with the proper keystore type file is not
a problem.
> A proper solution seems to apply the fix above to use the JDK-default keystore type,
and provide FileKeystoreInstance with an additional configuration option, keystoreType, that
would allow to change the keystore type through config.xml without recompilation, like this:
> <module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/server-security-config/2.0.2/car">
>   <gbean name="geronimo-default">
>     <attribute name="keystoreType">PKCS12</attribute>
>     <attribute name="keystorePath">var/security/keystores/geronimo-pkcs12</attribute>
>   </gbean>
> </module>
> This issue if a follow up to GERONIMO-2015.
