Follow SSLSupportDesk guide to keystore creation using our Portecle Guide. In order to generate a keystore for various Oracle systems that utilize.jks keystores using Keytool perform the following instructions listed below. Step 1: Create a Keystore: Create a certificate keystore and private key by executing the following command.
To Generate a Certificate by Using keytool
By default, the keytool utility creates a keystorefile in the directory where the utility is run.
Before You Begin
To run the keytool utility, your shell environmentmust be configured so that the J2SE /bin directory is inthe path, otherwise the full path to the utility must be present on the commandline.
Change to the directory that contains the keystore and truststorefiles.
Always generate the certificate in the directory containingthe keystore and truststore files. The default is domain-dir/config.
Generate the certificate in the keystore file, keystore.jks,using the following command format:
Use any unique name as your keyAlias. Ifyou have changed the keystore or private key password from the default (changeit), substitute the new password for changeit.The default key password alias is s1as.
A prompt appears that asks for your name, organization, and other information.
Export the generated certificate to the server.cer file(or client.cer if you prefer), using the following commandformat:
If a certificate signed by a certificate authority is required,see To Sign a Certificate by Using keytool.
Create the cacerts.jks truststore file andadd the certificate to the truststore, using the following command format:
If you have changed the keystore or private key password from the default(changeit), substitute the new password.
Information about the certificate is displayed and a prompt appearsasking if you want to trust the certificate.
Type yes, then press Enter.
