Generating unique self-signed certificates


Complete the following procedures to create a unique self-signed certificate for TrueSight Operations Management.

This provides the following latest standard practice of cryptography policy:

  • 2048 keysize
  • Signature algorithm SHA256withRSA
  • With customer specific details

Creating a new pnca keypair certificate

  1. Create a new pnca keypair certificate by running the following command:

    keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -alias pnca -keystore keystore_1.ks -storepass get2net -validity 299665 -keysize 2048 -sigalg SHA256withRSA

    This command prompts you to enter the details such as name, organization details as shown in the following code block. Type the details appropriately.

  2. What is your first and last name?
    [Unknown]: <FirstName LastName>
    What is the name of your organizational unit?
    [Unknown]: <organizational unit>
    What is the name of your organization?
    [Unknown]: <company>
    What is the name of your City or Locality?
    [Unknown]: <city>
    What is the name of your State or Province?
    [Unknown]: <state>
    What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
    [Unknown]: <country code>
    Is CN=<FirstName LastName>, OU=<organizational unit>, O=<company>, L=<city>, ST=<state>, C=<country code> correct?
    [no]: yes

    It  creates the file keystore_1.ks with alias pnca.

  3. Export Keystore as pnca.p12 by running the following command:

    keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore keystore_1.ks -destkeystore pnca.p12 -deststoretype PKCS12

    Note

    Use password get2net

  4. Delete old pnca from pnserver.ks  by running the following command:

    keytool -delete -alias pnca -keystore pnserver.ks -storepass get2net -storetype JKS
  5. Import pnca.p12 into pnserver.ks by running the following command:

    keytool -importkeystore -deststorepass get2net -destkeypass get2net -destkeystore pnserver.ks -srckeystore pnca.p12 -srcstoretype PKCS12 -srcstorepass get2net -alias pnca

    Note

    Replace pnca keypair certificate where required ( TrueSight Presentation Server , TrueSight Infrastructure Management components) using 4-5 step.


Creating a new pnagent certificate

  1. Create new pnagent certificate by running the following command:

    keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -alias pnagent -keystore keystore_2.ks -storepass get2net -validity 299665 -keysize 2048 -sigalg SHA256withRSA

    This command prompts you to enter the details such as name, organization details as shown in the following code block. Type the details appropriately.

  2. What is your first and last name?
    [Unknown]: <FirstName LastName>
    What is the name of your organizational unit?
    [Unknown]: <organizational unit>
    What is the name of your organization?
    [Unknown]: <company>
    What is the name of your City or Locality?
    [Unknown]: <city>
    What is the name of your State or Province?
    [Unknown]: <state>
    What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
    [Unknown]: <country code>
    Is CN=<FirstName LastName>, OU=<organizational unit>, O=<company>, L=<city>, ST=<state>, C=<country code>correct?
    [no]: yes

    It  creates file keystore_2.ks with alias pnagent.

  3. Export certificate from keystore_2.ks as pnagent.cer by running the following command:

    keytool -export -alias pnagent -file pnagent.cer -keystore keystore_2.ks

    Note

    Use password get2net

  4. Delete old pnagent from pnserver.ks by running the following command:

    keytool -delete -alias pnagent -keystore pnserver.ks -storepass get2net -storetype JKS
  5. Import pnagent.cer into pnserver.ks by running the following command:

    keytool -import -alias pnagent -file pnagent.cer -keystore pnserver.ks -storepass get2net

    Note

    Replace pnagent certificate where required. ( TrueSight Presentation Server , TrueSight Infrastructure Management components)

    Follow the 1-5 steps for creating rest of the certificates like jadmin , pnagenthttps , and mykey.

    Enter keystore password get2net.
    Crtificate stores in file <TunnelAgent.crt>

  4. Copy this TunnelAgent.crt at TSIM_HOME\TrueSight\pw\apache\conf
  5. Restart the TrueSight Infrastructure Mangement Server.

Note

  • Follow the 1-5 steps for creating rest of the keystores
    bmcatriumwsservernew : CN = ATRIUM WS SERVER (First Name and Last Name Filed )
    bmcatriumwsclientnew : CN = ATRIUM WS CLIENT (First Name and Last Name Filed )
  • Import keypair or certificate based in the default setting in respective certificates. (example, pnca is keypair in pnserver.ks and jadmin is certificate in pnserver.ks )

    Following are the places where pnagent, jadmin , pnserver, pnagenthttps certificates can be found at:
    • Integration service
      Navigate to path: \TSIMAgent\Agent\pronto\conf\pnagenthttps.ks and pnagent.ks
    • TrueSight Presentation Server
      Navigate to path: \truesightpserver\conf\secure\tspstruststore.ks
    • TrueSight Infrastructure Management
      Navigate to path: \pw\pronto\confpnagent.ks, jadmin.ks , pnserver.ks ,pnagenthttps.ks
