Re: SSL connection with 3rd party chained certificate.

Hi,

 

You need to load the CA Root, AND the Intermediate CA certificates into the CACERT keystore.

 

You need to load the Server certificate into the server keystore.

 

These both need to be referenced in the SM.ini file.

 

If you have configured two-way authentication by using the req_clientAuth 2 parameter in the sm.cfg file, then you need to also load the client certificate into the trustedclients.keystore.

Re: SSL connection with 3rd party chained certificate.

Hi Linde

Try to do the below steps and see if it is helpful 

1. Open the contents of all the three certificates seperately each in a notepad file.

2. Copy the contents from each file and make a single notepad file.

3. Save the notepad file as <name>.pem

4. Try to use this certificate in the server.xml file for the webclient , in the connection parameters.

5. I am not quite sure about the .pem file for the server side ssl. It may work, since I have followed the above steps for webclient SSL.

 

Thks
