Prepare truststore files

 

Overview

SSL protocol protects the communication between WAS appservers. To complete the SSL connection, establish a valid truststore file for the WebSphere Application Server. A truststore is a key database file that contains the public keys. A keystore is anything that Java or the System SSL libraries can read to acquire key information. For more information about how to create a new keystore, see Creating login key files.

 

Procedure

  1. Extract the public key of the server by using the key management tool from WebSphere Application Server. For details, see Configuring the server for request decryption: choosing the decryption method.

  2. Add the public key from the WAS as a signer certificate into the requesting WAS truststore. For details, see the related information about how to Import signer certificates.

 

Result

The WAS truststore file is now ready to use for SSL connections with the WebSphere Application Server.

 

What to do next
