you may want to follow the directions on how to create an empty keystore and then import Import
the private key/certificate chain into the java keystore using extkeytool

then take a look at the keys afterwards at
keytool -v -list -keystore

Anyone else?

Subject: problem with truststoreFile in server.xml

> Dear all,
> I have configured my Tomcat 5.5.17 to require SSL client authentication. For 
> this purpose, I have stored my root CA certificate into a PKCS12 keystore 
> which I use as truststoreFile by configuring server.xml. This CA certificate 
> is used to sign user certificates that I want to be trusted.
> The problem I have is the following:
> - truststoreFile (PKCS12) contains root CA certificate + private key -> 
> everything works perfectly.
> - truststoreFile (PKCS12) contains root CA certificate -> clients cannot 
> connect.
> truststoreFile should not contain private keys, so why does Tomcat behave in 
> this way?
> Thanks in advance.
