I've never seen that error before. What software says "Unable to display

How are you determining that?

So, it's okay but not okay?

The Tomcat documentation says to use "IbmX509". Are you sure that
"IbmIseriesX509" is the right value, here?

Stuck in SSL land, eh? :(

Your first sample configuration does not include a "keystoreFile"
setting. That is unlikely to work out for you.

The default keystoreType is "JKS". Is this a "JKS" store?

Is *this* a JKS store?

If the problem is the keystore, then the sslProtocol value will not be
the problem.

This will happen if you have the wrong keystore password, the wrong
keystore type, or an invalid keystore type. Which of the above
configurations was active when you got that exception? What was the full
error message, including stack trace?
