Enabling SSL on Windows

This topic describes how to enable HTTP on Windows for all the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management components. It also provides detailed configuration steps to make the secured communication between the components.

Note

Mixing protocols in a BMC Cloud Lifecycle Environment deployment is not supported. All of the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Environment components (for example, AR System Mid Tier, Platform Manager, Quick Start, and the My Cloud Services console) must be in HTTP mode or in HTTPS mode.

Tip

Copy and paste the SSL commands into a text editor like Notepad++ or TextPad, strip out the line breaks, and modify the syntax for your environment. 

CLM applications that support HTTPS on SSL during installation

The following table lists the CLM applications that support HTTPS on SSL during installation:

ProductSelf-sign certificate?Notes on integration path
Platform ManagerYes

Import the Platform Manager cacerts file into the JRE of the following products:

  • Mid Tier

  • AR Portal Java

  • Cloud Portal Web Application (EUP)

  • CLM Self-Check Monitor

  • Cloud Portal and Database AR System server

  • Atrium Orchestrator

Cloud Portal Web ApplicationYesImport Self-Checker certificate to display the Dashboard Data.
CLM Self-Check MonitorYes 
BMC Server Automation (BBSA)Yes 
BMC Network Automation (BBNA)Yes 
Atrium Core Web ServicesYesDefault HTTPS port is 7776. If you use port 7776, update information in the BMC Network Automation console.
Mid TierNo 
BMC Atrium OrchestratorNo 

Before you begin

  • Take a snapshot of your VMs or back up your servers. This precaution is necessary if you make a mistake and need to roll back your changes! 
  • When importing certificates, keypairs, or keystores, use the JRE embedded with the product or the latest version of JRE/Java installed on your host. 
  • If you are using a Google Chrome browser and encounter the weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key error, see KA428034 for a helpful workaround. To review this workaround in context, see To configure AMREPO to work with SSL.

Note

BMC tests SSL with OpenSSL generated certificates, as shown in this topic. But many customers in their production environments have root certificates issued by trusted certificate authorities (CA), for example, Verisign.

To create a Root CA certificate using OpenSSL

Note

You need the RootCA.key when you configure the Mid Tier, Atrium Core Web Services, and BMC Atrium Orchestrator with HTTPS on SSL.
  1. Download and install 64-bit OpenSSL1.0 on its own host.
    For example, download OpenSSL from the Shining Light Productions website. There are multiple OpenSSL versions available. Make sure that you install an OpenSSL version that includes the openSSL.cfg file. 
  2. Create KeysCertificates, and CSR folders. 
    These categories are for placing keys, certificates files, and so on.
  3. Open a command prompt and navigate to the OpenSSL folder. 
  4. Generate the key pair for root CA. 
    Store this key pair in the C:\Keys\RootCA.key file.

    C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl genrsa -out C:\Keys\RootCA.key 2048
    Loading 'screen' into random state - done
    Generating RSA private key, 2048 bit long modulus
    ...............++++++
    ....................................................++++++
    e is 65537 (0x10001)
  5. Generate a self signed certificate for CA. 
    This CA certificate is used across all cloud products as a common certificate. Store the certificate in the RootCA.crt file.

    1. Enter the following command:

      C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl req 
      -config C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin\openSSL.cfg
      -new -x509 -days 365 -key C:\Keys\RootCA.key
      -out C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt
    2. Create a Distinguished Name (DN)..
      Make sure that you enter all required information. Many fields contain defaults. Some settings you can leave blank. If you enter a period, the field will be left blank. 

      Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:US
      State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:California
      Locality Name (eg, city) []:San Jose
      Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:BMC Software
      Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:IDD
      Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) []:clm-aus-011538.bmc.com
      Email Address []:jstamps@bmc.com
    3. Press Enter to create the certificate.


To import self-signed certificates for new 4.6 installations

When you are performing new installations, you must import SSL certificates for Small or Medium deployments. 

Note

For Compact deployment, you do not need to import the cacerts file since all the product components are on a single host. 

Note

In version 4.6, only Compact, Small, and Medium deployments are supported.

The following CLM products already have HTTPS/SSL enabled by default:

  • Platform Manager
  • Self-Check Monitor
  • Cloud Portal Web Application
  • BMC Network Automation
  • BMC Server Automation
  • BMC Capacity Optimization (if you assigned HTTPS/8443 over SSL during installation)

If you installed Platform Manager with the installer planner on HTTPS/SSL with Small or Medium deployments, you still must import the cacerts file from the Platform Manager into the JRE on the following products:

  • Mid Tier
  • Cloud Portal Web Application
  • CLM Self-Check Monitor
  • Cloud Portal and Database AR System server
  • Atrium Orchestrator

    Note

    Before you import the cacerts file, BAO Access Manager must already be configured to use HTTPS/8443 over SSL and BAO CDP must be configured to use HTTPS/9443 over SSL. For more information, see To configure BMC Atrium Orchestrator with SSL.
  1. Copy the cacerts file on the Platform Manager to the product host.
    For example, copy the cacerts file from the installed JVM on Platform Manager to the C:\TEMP folder.  

    Note

    The cacerts file installed with the Platform Manager from the installed Oracle 64-bit 1.8 JVM is located by default at C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement\JVM_1.8.0_60\lib\security for version 4.6.
  2. Open a command window on the product host.
  3. Change directories to the JRE version 8 bin directory (for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\CloudPortalWebApplication\jre\bin)
  4. Import the keystore (cacerts) certificate in the application cacerts.
    Make sure that you understand which JRE your application used during installation. This example imports the keystore certificate into the cacerts of an external JRE used. 

    keyTool -importkeystore -srckeystore "C:\TEMP\cacerts" 
    -destkeystore "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\lib\security\cacerts" 
    -srcstoretype JKS -deststoretype JKS -srcstorepass changeit 
    -deststorepass changeit -noprompt

    However, this example imports the keystore certificate into the cacerts of the bundled JRE used by the Cloud Portal Web Application (clmui). 

    keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore "C:\TEMP\cacerts" 
    -destkeystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\CloudPortalWebApplication\jre\lib\security\cacerts" 
    -srcstoretype JKS -deststoretype JKS -srcstorepass changeit  
    -deststorepass changeit -noprompt
  5. To monitor Dashboard Data, import the CLM Self-Check Monitor certificate (selfcheckSslCertificate.cert) with the JRE used by the Cloud Portal Web Application (whether installed on the Platform Manager or on a separate host) during installation. 
    The default location of selfcheckSslCertificate.cert is C:\Program Files\BMC Software\SelfChecker\selfchecker\Certificates.

  6. Restart the application service. 
    For example, restart the BMC CSM Portal service.

  7. Flush the browser cache. 

  8. Clear the Mid Tier Plugins Cache.
  9. Log on to the application, add and confirm the site exception, and so on.


To configure the Mid Tier SSL

  1. On the Mid Tier host, create KeysCertificates, and CSR folders. 
  2. Stop the Mid Tier Tomcat server.
  3. Open a command prompt and navigate to the JRE folder. 
  4. Create a keypair using the keytool utility.
    If the Mid Tier is behind a load balancer, use CN as the load balancer name.  But here it is vw-aus-clnidd03

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin>keytool.exe -genkey 
    -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 
    -keypass "changeit" -storepass "changeit" -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks
  5. At the prompts, enter the required information to create the keypair, and then press Enter

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin>keytool.exe -genkey -alias tomcat 
    -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -keypass "changeit" 
    -storepass "changeit" -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks
    What is your first and last name?
      [Unknown]:  vw-aus-clnidd03
    What is the name of your organizational unit?
      [Unknown]:  IDD
    What is the name of your organization?
      [Unknown]:  BMC
    What is the name of your City or Locality?
      [Unknown]:  SAN JOSE
    What is the name of your State or Province?
      [Unknown]:  CA
    What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
      [Unknown]:  US
    Is CN=vw-aus-clnidd03, OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=SAN JOSE, ST=CA, C=US correct?
      [no]:  yes
  6. Create the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) from Mid Tier primary to retrieve the certificate from CA (i.e. CLM).

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin>keytool.exe 
    -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias tomcat -file C:\CSR\mt.csr 
    -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks
    Enter keystore password:

    At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.

  7. Copy the mt.csr file to the CSR folder where OpenSSL is installed so that you can generate a certificate, and then run the following command on the OpenSSL computer:

    C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl x509 -req -days 365 
    -in C:\CSR\mt.csr -CA C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt 
    -CAkey C:\Keys\RootCA.key -set_serial 01 
    -out C:\Certificates\mt_server.crt
     Loading 'screen' into random state - done
    Signature ok
    subject=/C=US/ST=CA/L=SAN JOSE/O=BMC/OU=IDD/CN=vw-aus-clnidd03
    Getting CA Private Key
  8. After the certificate is generated (mt_server.crt) in the Certificates folder, copy mt_server.crt and RootCA.crt to the Mid Tier primary and secondary computers into their Certificates folder.

  9. On the Mid Tier primary and secondary computers, import the Root CA certificate:

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin>keytool.exe 
    -import -alias root 
    -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Owner: EMAILADDRESS=jstamps@bmc.com, CN=JOHN, OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=SJ, ST=CA, C=US
    Issuer: EMAILADDRESS=jstamps@bmc.com, CN=JOHN, OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=SJ, ST=CA, C=US
    ...
    Trust this certificate? [no]:  yes
    Certificate was added to keystore
    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin>
    1. At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.

    2. When you see the Trust this certificate prompt, enter yes
      Your certificate is added to the keystore.  
  10. Import the mt_server.crt certificate:

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin>keytool.exe 
    -import -alias tomcat 
    -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks -trustcacerts 
    -file C:\Certificates\mt_server.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Certificate reply was installed in keystore

    At the prompt, enter changeit as the password. Your certificate reply is installed in the keystore.  

  11. Open the server.xml file (in Windows, the default location is C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat6.0\conf\server.xml) in a text editor and uncomment the SSL related sections.
    1. Search for the following text and uncomment out the Connector port section:

      <!-- Define a SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8443
               This connector uses the JSSE configuration, when using APR, the 
               connector should be using the OpenSSL style configuration
               described in the APR documentation -->
          <!--
          <Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
                     maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
                     clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />
          -->

       

    2. Modify the Connector port information as follows:

      <Connector port="9443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
                 maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
                 clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" 
                 keystoreFile="C:\Keys\keystore.jks"
      		   keystorePass="<passwordMustEqualYourKeystorePassword>"	
      />

       Here you change the connector port to 9443 and add the keyStore file location and keystore password.

      Note

      If you do not add the correct keystore password, the Tomcat server does not start properly. 
    3. Save the server.xml .

       

  12. Start the Tomcat server.
  13. Verify your changes to the Mid Tier or Mid Tier Load Balancer by accessing the following URL:
    https://midTier:9443/arsys (where 9443 is SSL port)
    https://loadBalancer:9443/arsys
  14. Add and confirm any security restrictions in your browser.
     
  15. When you access the Mid Tier the first time, review the certificate details.
    1. Review the General tab and verify who the certificate is issued to and who it was issued by.
    2. Click the Details tab and, review the certificate path or hierarchy.
  16. Continue logging on to the Cloud Portal and Database AR System server.

To integrate the Mid Tier with Platform Manager

  1. Open the CMF:PluginConfiguration form in Search mode in the Cloud Portal and Database AR System server.
    1. Search for the CallBackURI record.
    2. Edit the CallBackURI from http to https.
    3. Edit the port to 9443.
    4. Save the record.
  2. Copy the RootCA.crt certificate from the Mid Tier server to the Platform Manager server (for example, to a Certificates folder).

  3. Open a command window and change directories to C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement\JVM_1.7.0_55\bin (by default).

  4. Back up the ..\JVM_1.7.0_55\lib\security\cacerts file. 

  5. Import the certificate:

    keytool.exe -import -alias root 
    -keystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement
    \JVM_1.7.0_55\lib\security\cacerts" 
    -trustcacerts -file "C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt"
    Enter keystore password:
    Re-enter new password:
    ...
    Trust this certificate? [no]: yes
    Certificate was added to keystore
  6. At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.
  7. When you see the Trust this certificate prompt, enter yes
    Your certificate is added to the keystore.   
  8. Restart the services in the following order – first BMC CSM on Platform Manager and second the Cloud Portal and Database AR System server.

To configure Atrium Web Services SSL

The following instructions apply only to Small or Medium deployments.

Note

In Compact Deployment, Atrium Web Services are not available as a separate component. Instead, they are installed as part of the Mid Tier. As a result, you do not need to configure SSL separately for Compact Deployment.
  1. On the primary Atrium Core Web Services Registry host, create KeysCertificates, and CSR folders. 
  2. Stop the Atrium Tomcat server.
  3. Open a command prompt and navigate to the JRE folder. 
  4. Create a keypair using the keytool utility. 
    If the Atrium Web Services are behind a load balancer, you can use CN as the load-balancer name.  But here it is vw-aus-clnidd01.

    https://<AWS>:9443 (where 9443 is SSL port)
    https://<LoadBalancer>:9443
  14. Add and confirm any security restrictions in your browser.

  15. When you access AWS UDDI the first time, review the certificate details.
  16. Review who the certificate is issued to (for example, vw-aus-clnidd01) and who the certificate was issued by (for example, bmc.com).
  17. Review the certificate path or hierarchy.

To integrate Atrium Web Services with BMC Network Automation

The following instructions apply only to Small or Medium deployments.

Note

In Compact Deployment, Atrium Web Services are not available as a separate component. Instead, they are installed as part of the Mid Tier. As a result, you do not need to configure SSL separately for Compact Deployment.
  1. Log on to the Mid Tier to access the Cloud Portal and Database AR System server.
    You can use https://<MidTier>:9443/arsys to access the Cloud Portal and Database AR System server. 

    Note

    If you are running a dual AR System server environment, modify the default web path for the Enterprise-AR and Cloud-AR servers.  
  2. Open the Server Information form for the Cloud Portal and Database AR System server.
  3. Click the Advanced tab, and modify the URL in the Default Web Path field with the updated https and port (for example, 9443).
    For example, you might enter https://vw-san-clmidd:9443/arsys/.
  4. Restart the Cloud Portal and Database AR System server.
  5. Log on to BMC Network Automation.
    For example, go to https://bnaServer:11443/bca-networks  
  6. Click the Admin tab, and navigate to System Admin > System Parameters.
  7. In the Enable CMDB Integration section, modify the Web Service Endpoint URL field with the updated https and port 9443 URL (for example, https://bnaServer:9443/cmdbws/server/cmdbws.wsdl).
     
  8. Click Save
    The BMC Network Automation console verifies your changes.  
  9. When you finish, verify that physical location is accessed by BMC Network Automation during POD creation through the Atrium Web Services.

    If you have successfully integrated Atrium Web service and BNA SSL communication, go to BMC Network Automation and try to create a POD. The physical location created in the AR System server should be visible in the list during POD creation.

To configure SSL with BMC Server Automation

Warning

If you installed BMC Server Automation with the default settings, HTTPS on SSL is already enabled. Do not complete these steps if SSL is already enabled on the host. Otherwise, you run the risk of accidentally breaking functionality that is already working properly. 

For more information on using a CA-issued certificate or certificate chain rather than the default self-signed certificate, see Securing communication with CA certificates in the BMC Server Automation documentation. 

  1. On the BMC Server Automation host, create KeysCertificates, and CSR folders. 
  2. Stop the BladeLogic Application Server.
  3. Back up the bladelogic.keystore file, located at C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\appserver\br\deployments or C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH\br\deployments and then delete the original. 

  4. Open a command prompt and navigate to the BladeLogic JRE folder (for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH\jre\bin). 
  5. On the BMC Server Automation primary host, create a keypair using the keytool utility. 
    If BMC Server Automation is behind a load balancer, you can use CN as the load-balancer name. 

    Note

    In the keytool syntax, use the password you created when you installed BMC Server Automation, not changeit
    keytool.exe -genkey -alias blade -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 
    -keypass "<password>" -storepass "<password>"

    BladeLogic\NSH\br\deployments\_template\bladelogic.keystore"
    Enter keystore password:


    At the prompt, enter the BMC Server Automation password, not changeit

  8. Copy the blade.csr file to the CSR folder where OpenSSL is installed so that you can generate a certificate (blade.crt), and then run the following command on the OpenSSL computer:

    C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl x509 -req -days 365 
    -in C:\CSR\blade.csr -CA C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt 
    -CAkey C:\Keys\RootCA.key -set_serial 01 
    -out C:\Certificates\blade.crt
    Loading 'screen' into random state - done
    Signature ok
    subject=/C=US/ST=CA/L=SAN JOSE/O=BMC/OU=IDD/CN=JOHN STAMPS
    Getting CA Private Key

     

  9. After the certificate is generated (blade.crt) in the Certificates folder, copy blade.crt and RootCA.crt to the BMC Server Automation primary host into its Certificates folder.

  10. On the BMC Server Automation primary host, import the Root CA certificate:

    keytool.exe -import -alias blade 
    -keystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH\
    br\deployments\_template\bladelogic.keystore" 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt
    Enter keystore password:

    O=BMC, L=SJ, ST=CA, C=US
    Issuer: EMAILADDRESS=jstamps@bmc.com, CN=JOHN, 
    OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=SJ, ST=CA, C=US
    ...
    Trust this certificate? [no]:  yes
    Certificate was added to keystore

     

    1. At the prompt, enter the BMC Server Automation password, not changeit
    2. When you see the Trust this certificate prompt, enter yes
      Your certificate is added to the keystore. 

  11. Import the blade.crt certificate:

    C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH\jre\bin>keytool.exe 
    -import -alias blade 
    -keystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH\
    br\deployments\_template\bladelogic.keystore" 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\blade.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Certificate reply was installed in keystore


    Your certificate reply is installed in the keystore.  

  12. Copy the bladelogic.keystore file you just created from the _template folder to each of the deployments server folders.
  13. Start the BladeLogic Application Server.
  14. Verify your changes to the BMC Server Automation URL by accessing the following link:
    https://<BladeLogic>:10843 (where 10843 is the SSL port)
  15. When you access BMC Server Automation URL the first time, review the certificate details.
  16. Log on to the BladeLogic Application Server.through BMC Server Automation Console.
    In the login screen, click Options > Certificates > View to view the certificate. This screen displays the certificate details like issued to clm-hou-bbsa and Issued by CA (for example, CLM).
  17. For BMC Server Automation secondary, follows the relevant steps (typically 1 > 2 > 3 > 12 > 13 >14 >15 >16 >17 in order).

To configure SSL with BMC Server Automation and Platform Manager

  1. On the Platform Manager host, open the providers.json file.
  2. Change the protocol and the SSL port in the providers.json file for the BBSA_SERVER_PORT attribute value.

    For example:

      "name" : "BBSA_SERVER_PORT"
        },
        "attributeValue" : "10843",
        "description" : "BBSA Webservices Port",
        "guid" : "1a0e98f9-905e-4117-99dd-759f7ad41b71",
        "name" : "BBSA_SERVER_PORT"

          "datatype" : "STRING",
          "description" : "BBSA Server Protocol",
          "guid" : "3bf2db7a-af7e-4bc7-8674-63c6df997a75",
          "isOptional" : false,
          "isPassword" : false,
          "modifiableWithoutRestart" : false,
          "name" : "BBSA_SERVER_PROTOCOL"
        },
        "attributeValue" : "https",
        "description" : "BBSA Server Protocol",
  3. Save your changes and restart the Platform Manager.

To configure BMC Network Automation with SSL

Warning

If you installed BMC Network Automation with the default settings, HTTPS on SSL is already enabled. Do not complete these steps if SSL is already enabled on the host. Otherwise, you run the risk of accidentally breaking functionality that is already working properly. 

Note

The BMC Network Automation CLI might not use the default JVM bundled with BNA (for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\java\bin). In this case, you must import the root (and any intermediate) certificates into the keystore of the native JVM of the OS (in Windows, for example, C:\Program Files\Jave\jre7\lib\security\cacert).
  1. On the BMC Network Automation host, create KeysCertificates, and CSR folders. 
  2. Stop the BCA-Networks Web Server.
  3. Back up the .keystore file (by default, located at C:\BCA-Networks-Data) and then delete the original.
  4. On the primary BMC Network Automation host, open a command prompt and navigate to the BCA-Network JRE folder (for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\java\bin). 
  5. Create a keypair using the keytool utility. 
    If BMC Network Automation is behind a load balancer, you can use CN as the load-balancer name.  Use the following syntax so that keytool works properly:

    C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\java\bin>keytool.exe 
    -genkey -alias clm-bna -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -keypass "changeit" 
    -storepass "changeit" -keystore "C:\BCA-Networks-Data\.keystore"
    What is your first and last name?
      [Unknown]:  JOHN STAMPS
    What is the name of your organizational unit?
      [Unknown]:  IDD
    What is the name of your organization?
      [Unknown]:  BMC
    What is the name of your City or Locality?
      [Unknown]:  SAN JOSE
    What is the name of your State or Province?
      [Unknown]:  CA
    What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
      [Unknown]:  US
    Is CN=JOHN STAMPS, OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=SAN JOSE, ST=CA, C=US correct?
      [no]:  yes
  6. At the prompts, enter the required information to create the keypair, and then press Enter
  7. Create the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) from BMC Network Automation primary to retrieve the certificate from CA (that is, CLM).

    keytool.exe -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias clm-bna 
    -file C:\CSR\clm-bna.csr -keystore "C:\BCA-Networks-Data\.keystore"
    Enter keystore password:


    At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.

  8. Copy the clm-bna.csr file to the CSR folder where OpenSSL is installed so that you can generate a certificate (clm-bna.crt), and then run the following command on the OpenSSL computer:

    C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl>openssl x509 -req -days 365 
    -in C:\CSR\clm-bna.csr -CA C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt 
    -CAkey C:\Keys\RootCA.key -set_serial 04 
    -out C:\Certificates\clm-bna.crt
    Loading 'screen' into random state - done
    Signature ok
    subject=/C=US/ST=CA/L=SAN JOSE/O=BMC/OU=IDD/CN=clm-bna
    Getting CA Private Key

     

  9. After the certificate is generated (clm-bna.crt) in the Certificates folder, copy clm-bna.crt and RootCA.crt to the BMC Network Automation primary and secondary hosts into their Certificates folder.

  10. On the BMC Network Automation primary and secondary computers, import the first Root CA certificate into the C:\BCA-Networks-Data\.keystore file that we generated:

    C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH\jre\bin>keytool.exe 
    -import -alias root -keystore "C:\BCA-Networks-Data\.keystore" 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt
    Owner: EMAILADDRESS=jstamps@bmc.com, CN=bmc.com, 
    OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=San Jose, ST=CA, C=US
    ...
    Trust this certificate? [no]:  yes
    Certificate was added to keystore
    1. At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.
    2. When you see the Trust this certificate prompt, enter yes
      Your certificate is added to the keystore. 

    3. If you have a secondary BMC Network Automation computer, import only the RootCA certificate in the java\cacerts file.
  11. Import Root CA into the C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\java\lib\security\cacerts file:

    C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\java\bin>keytool.exe 
    -import -alias root 
    -keystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\java\lib\security\cacerts" 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\certificates\RootCA.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Owner: EMAILADDRESS=jstamps@bmc.com, CN=bmc.com, OU=IDD, 
    O=BMC, L=San Jose, ST=CA, C=US
    ...
    Trust this certificate? [no]:  yes
    Certificate was added to keystore

     

  12. Import the blm-bna.crt certificate:

    C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\java\bin>keytool.exe 
    -import -alias clm-bna -keystore C:\BCA-Networks-Data\.keystore 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\clm-bna.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Certificate reply was installed in keystore


    Your certificate reply is installed in the keystore.  

  13. Generate the encryption string for changeit.

    1. Open the BNA maintenance utility (by default, installed in C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\utility).

    2. Click the Encrypt tab.

    3. Enter and confirm the changeit password.

    4. Click Encrypt to generate the encryption string for changeit

    5. Use the generated string for the keystorePassword  parameter in the server.xml file (by default, located at C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BCA-Networks\tomcat\conf).

  14. Start the BCA-Networks Web Server.

  15. Verify the BNA link by accessing https://<BNA-LB>:443 where 443 is SSL port.
  16. If you have a load balancer, failover the BNA service and verify that you can able to access the link with Cluster name and with the same certificate it displays.
  17. When you access the BMC Network Automation URL the first time, review the certificate details, and so on.

Note

No integration level changes are required for BMC Network Automation. In the providers.json file on the Platform Manager host, the BNA section is already populated with the https protocol and SSL port. This SSL port should be same on which you configured BMC Network Automation.

To configure Platform Manager from HTTPS to HTTP with a Self-Signed Certificate

Use the following steps to configure HTTPS to HTTP using a Self-Signed Certificate. If you are running HA, you only need to run the following commands on the primary host. SSL-level certification is not required on the secondary HA host. 

  1. Make sure the CSM service is running on the primary Platform Manager host. 
  2. On the primary Platform Manager host, create KeysCertificates, and CSR folders. 
  3. Back up the keystore file (by default, located at C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement\Platform_Manager\security).
  4. Open a command prompt and navigate to the JRE folder (for example, C:\Program Files\java\jre7\bin). 
  5. Create a keypair using the keytool utility and store it at C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement\Platform_Manager\security

    keytool.exe -genkey -alias PM -keyalg RSA -keysize 1024 
    -keypass "changeit" -storepass "changeit" 
    -keystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement\
    Platform_Manager\security\keystore"
    What is your first and last name?
      [Unknown]:  clm-hou-pm
    What is the name of your organizational unit?
      [Unknown]:  IDD
    What is the name of your organization?
      [Unknown]:  BMC
    What is the name of your City or Locality?
      [Unknown]:  San Jose
    What is the name of your State or Province?
      [Unknown]:  CA
    What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
      [Unknown]:  US
    Is CN=clm-hou-pm, OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=San Jose, ST=CA, C=US correct?
      [no]:  yes

    At the prompts, enter the required information to create the keypair, and then press Enter. For example, use clm-hou-pm as the cluster name. 

  6. Create the Certificate Signing Request (PM.csr) to retrieve the certificate from Root CA.

    keytool.exe -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias PM 
    -file C:\CSR\PM.csr 
    -keystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement\
    Platform_Manager\security\keystore"
    Enter keystore password:

    At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.

  7. Copy the PM.csr file to the CSR folder where OpenSSL is installed so that you can generate a certificate (PM.crt), and then run the following command on the OpenSSL host:

     C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl x509 -req -days 365 
    -in C:\CSR\PM.csr -CA C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt 
    -CAkey C:\Keys\RootCA.key -set_serial 01 -out C:\Certificates\pm.crt
    Loading 'screen' into random state - done
    Signature ok
    subject=/C=US/ST=CA/L=San Jose/O=BMC/OU=IDD/CN=clm-hou-pm
    Getting CA Private Key
  8. After the certificate is generated (PM.crt) in the Certificates folder, copy PM.crt and RootCA.crt to the Platform Manager primary host into the Certificates folder.

  9. On the Platform Manager primary host, import the Root CA certificate:

     keytool.exe -import -alias root

To configure Platform Manager from HTTP to HTTPS with a Self-Signed Certificate

Warning

If you installed Platform Manager with the default settings, HTTPS on SSL is already enabled.

To modify the Platform Manager integration with SSL

The following procedure applies if you are running multiple IT Service Management servers. 

  1. In Cloud Portal and Database ITSM, open the CMF:PluginConfiguration form and change the Root URL from http to https and update the SSL port to 9443.
  2. In both ITSM hosts, import the RootCA certificate. 
    1. Copy the RootCA.crt certificate to both hosts in its own folder (for example, C:\Certificates).
    2. Import the certificate by entering following command.

      C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin>keytool -import -alias root -keystore "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\lib\security\cacerts" -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt

To configure BMC Capacity Optimization with SSL

Warning

If you installed BMC Capacity Optimization with HTTPS on SSL, these instructions do not apply to you. Do not complete these steps if SSL is already enabled on the host. Otherwise, you run the risk of accidentally breaking functionality that is already working properly. 

This is a two-step process:

To generate a certificate and key to use with Apache

  1. Install the following packages on the host if they are not already present.

    • crypto-utils

    • mod_ssl

  2. After installing these packages, generate a new key and a new SSL certificate using the genkey $hostname command. 
    Here $hostname is the fully qualified domain name of your BMC Capacity Optimization application server machine.

  3. To create a certificate request, select the appropriate option.
    Enter the certificate fields with your information (Name, Firm, Country, and so on). If you do not want to manually insert a password every time you restart the Apache Httpd server (for

    example, if you are in an automatic HA environment), clear the encrypt key option.

  4. During key generation, review the following output on the console:

    [root@clm-bco ~]# genkey csm-bco
    /usr/bin/keyutil -c genreq -g 2048 -s "CN=csm-bco, OU=CDL, O=BMC, L=PUN, ST=MAHA, C=IN" -v 24 -a -o /etc/pki/tls/certs/csm-bco.0.csr -k /etc/pki/tls/private/csm-bco.key -z /etc/pki/tls/.rand.24660

    random seed from /etc/pki/tls/.rand.24660
    output will be written to /etc/pki/tls/certs/csm-bco.crt
    output key written to /etc/pki/tls/private/csm-bco.key

    The Certificate Signing Request (csm-bco.0.csr) file is generated at the /etc/pki/tls/certs location.

  5. Copy the csm-bco-0.csr file where you have CA or generate the CA certificate.
    Or send this csr file to CA to get certificate.

  6. On the OpenSSL host, generate the certifcate, using the csm-bco-0.csr file. 

    C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in C:\CSR\csm-bco.0.csr -CA C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt -CAkey C:\Keys\RootCA.key -set_serial 878 -out C:\Certificates\csm-bco.crt
    Loading 'screen' into random state - done
    Signature ok
    subject=/C=IN/ST=MAHA/L=PUN/O=BMC/OU=CDL/CN=csm-bco
    Getting CA Private Key

     

  7. When you finish generating the key, you have the following results:

    • $hostname.crt certificate file in /etc/pki/tls/certs/
    • $hostname.key key file in /etc/pki/tls/private/
  8. Create /pki/tls/certs and /pki/tls/private folders at $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc.
  9. Copy /etc/pki/tls/certs/$hostname.crt to $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc/pki/tls/certs/<hostname>.cert.
  10. Copy /etc/pki/tls/private/$hostname.key to $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc/pki/tls/ private/<hostname>.key.
  11. Change the owner of both the copied files and the created folders to the owner using BMC Capacity Optimization.

To enable HTTPS in Apache

Note

  • Make sure that the ssl.conf file is present under $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc/httpd/conf.d. If not, then create it with following SSL contents.
  • Make sure that the mod_ssl.so file is present under $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc/httpd/modules. If not, then copy it from the /etc/httpd/modules path.

To enable HTTPS in your BMC Capacity Optimization installation, perform the following steps:

  1. Modify the caplan.conf configuration file located at $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc/httpd/conf.d, by adding the following information:

    SSLEngine on
    SSLProxyEngine on
    SSLProtocol all -SSLv2
    SSLCipherSuite ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT:!SSLv2:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:+LOW
    SSLCertificateFile $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc/pki/tls/certs/<hostname>.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile  $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2 /etc/pki/tls/private/<hostname>.key
  2. Create the ssl.conf file in $CPITBASE/3rd_party/apache2/etc/httpd/conf.d and add the following content.

    LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
    Listen 8443
    AddType application/x-x509-ca-cert .crt
    AddType application/x-pkcs7-crl    .crl
    SSLPassPhraseDialog  builtin
    SSLSessionCache         shmcb:/var/cache/mod_ssl/scache(512000)
    SSLSessionCacheTimeout  300
    SSLMutex default
    SSLRandomSeed startup file:/dev/urandom  256
    SSLRandomSeed connect builtin
    SSLCryptoDevice builtin


    Make sure that you change the required SSL port.

  3. Restart Httpd using the $CPITBASE/cpit restart httpd command.
    The new URL to connect to BCO will be https://$hostname:8443/console
  4. Import the certificate into /gfs/cpit/jre/lib/security/cacerts for the trusted CA certificate.

    [root@clm-bco bin]# ./keytool -import -alias root -keystore /gfs/cpit/jre/lib/security/cacerts -trustcacerts -file /etc/pki/tls/certs/RootCA.crt

To integrate BMC Capacity Optimization and Platform Manager changes into SSL

Note

If you are integrating BMC Capacity Optimization with HTTPS mode with PM, you do not need to perform any manual steps. The integration itself take care of all the required steps.

To configure BMC Atrium Orchestrator with SSL

A HA environment typically has the following components installed.

  • Host A Primary: AMREPO (Access Manager and Repository) and CDP installed
  • Host B Secondary: AMREPO and HACDP installed
  • Host C: SQL DB for AMREPO

In non-HA environments, BMC Atrium Orchestrator Access Manager and Repository are installed on a single server. For example, see To install Atrium Orchestrator AMREPO in Installing Small Deployment Windows for version 4.6.

  1. On the main AO hosts (for example, Host A and B), create KeysCertificates, and CSR folders.
  2. Stop the Access Manager and Repository service and the Configuration Distribution Peer (CDP) service.

  3. Open a command prompt and navigate to the AMREPO JRE folder (for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\AO-Platform\AMREPO\jvm\bin). 
  4. On primary Host A, create a keypair using the keytool utility. 
    If Atrium Orchestrator is behind a load balancer, use CN as the load balancer name.  
    At the prompts, enter the required information to create the keypair, and then press Enter

    keytool.exe -genkey -alias AO -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048

    What is your first and last name?
      [Unknown]:  vw-aus-clmidd04.bmc.com
    What is the name of your organizational unit?
      [Unknown]:  IDD
    What is the name of your organization?
      [Unknown]:  BMC Software
    What is the name of your City or Locality?
      [Unknown]:  SAN JOSE
    What is the name of your State or Province?
      [Unknown]:  California
    What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
      [Unknown]:  US
    Is CN=vw-aus-clmidd04.bmc.com, OU=IDD, O=BMC, L=SAN JOSE, ST=California, C=US correct?
      [no]:  yes
  5. Create the Certificate Signing Request (ao.csr) from AO primary to retrieve the certificate from CA (i.e. CLM).

    At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.

    keytool.exe -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias AO 
    -file C:\CSR\ao.csr -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks
    Enter keystore password:
  6. Copy the ao.csr file to the CSR folder where OpenSSL is installed so that you can generate a certificate, and then run the following command on the OpenSSL computer:

    C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin>openssl x509 -req -days 365 
    -in "C:\CSR\ao.csr" -CA "C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt"
    -CAkey "C:\Keys\RootCA.key" -set_serial 999 -out "C:\Certificates\ao.crt"
    Loading 'screen' into random state - done
    Signature ok
    subject=/C=US/ST=California/L=SAN JOSE/O=BMC Software/OU=IDD/CN=vw-aus-clmidd04.bmc.com
    Getting CA Private Key
  7. After the certificate is generated (ao.crt) in the Certificates folder, copy ao.crt and RootCA.crt and paste them to the AO primary and AO secondary into their Certificates folder.

To configure AMREPO to work with SSL

  1. On the AO primary and AO secondary hosts, import the Root CA certificate.
    At the prompt, enter changeit as the password. When you see the Trust this certificate prompt, enter yes. Your certificate is added to the keystore.  

    keytool.exe -import -alias root -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Owner: EMAILADDRESS=jstamps@bmc.com, CN=vw-aus-clmidd05.bmc.com, 
    OU=IDD, O=BMC Software, L=San Jose, ST=California, C=US
    ...
    Trust this certificate? [no]:  yes
    Certificate was added to keystore
  2. Import the ao.crt certificate into the AO JVM security folder.
    At the prompt, enter changeit as the password.
    Your certificate reply is installed in the keystore.  

    keytool.exe -import -alias root
    -keystore "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\AO-Platform\AMREPO\
    jvm\jre\lib\security\cacerts" -trustcacerts 
    -file C:\Certificates\RootCA.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Owner: EMAILADDRESS=jstamps@bmc.com, CN=vw-aus-clmidd05.bmc.com, 
    OU=IDD, O=BMC Software, L=San Jose, ST=California, C=US
    ...
    Trust this certificate? [no]:  yes
    Certificate was added to keystore
  3. Import the ao.crt certificate into keystore.jks (for example, C:\Keys\keystore.jks):

    keytool.exe -import -alias AO -keystore C:\Keys\keystore.jks 
    -trustcacerts -file C:\Certificates\ao.crt
    Enter keystore password:
    Certificate reply was installed in keystore
  4. Open the Access Manager server.xml file (in Windows, for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\AO-Platform\AMREPO\tomcat\conf\server.xml) in a text editor and uncomment the SSL related sections. 

    1. Search for the following text and uncomment out the Connector port section:

      <!-- Define a SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8443
               This connector uses the JSSE configuration, when using APR, the 
               connector should be using the OpenSSL style configuration
               described in the APR documentation -->
          <!--
          <Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
                     maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
                     clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />
          -->
    2. Modify the Connector port information as follows.
      Uncomment the following section and change the protocol from HTTP/1.1 to org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol, and add the keystoreFile path for keystore.jks
      Make sure that you save the file.

      Note

      This section also includes the ciphers that fix the weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key error that you see with Google Chrome browsers. 
      <Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol" 
                     SSLEnabled="true"
                     maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"

      			   keystoreFile="C:\Keys\keystore.jks"
      />

       

  5. Update the Login page entry in the context.xml file (for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\AO-Platform\AMREPO\tomcat\conf\context.xml) as follows:

    <Environment name="com.bmc.security.am.LOGIN_PAGE" 
    override="true" type="java.lang.String" 
    value="https://clm-hou-007778:8443/baoam/login.jsf"/>
  6. Start the AMREPO server and verify the Access Manager URL.
    For example:
    https://AMPrimaryHost:8443/baoam
  7. Add and confirm any security restrictions in your browser.
    For example, the certificate should display Issued by: bmc.com and Issued to: vw-aus-clmidd04
     
  8. Verify the Repository Manager URL and certificates.
    For example:
    https://AMPrimaryHost:8443/baorepo
  9. Make the same changes to the secondary AMREPO server.
    1. Copy the keystore file.
    2. Update the server.xml and context.xml files.
    3. Import the Root CA certificate.
    4. Start the secondary Access Manager server. 
    5. Verify the URL.

To configure primary and secondary CDP to work with SSL

Note

 For CDP, use the same RootCA.crt and keystore.jks files you previously generated. In addition, use the keystore.jks file from the C:\Keys\keystore.jks path.

  1. Modify the server.xml file (for example, C:\Program Files\BMC Software\AO-Platform\CDP\tomcat\conf\server.xml) as follows.
    Uncomment the following section and update the required port (for example, 9443), change the protocol from HTTP/1.1 to org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocoland add the keystoreFile path for keystore.

    Note

    This section also includes the ciphers that fix the weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key error that you see with Google Chrome browsers.

      [Unknown]:  US
    Is CN="clm-aus-011540,bmc.com", OU=IDD, O=BMC Software, L=San Jose, ST=Californi
    a, C=US correct?
      [no]:  yes
    Enter key password for <tomcat>
            (RETURN if same as keystore password):

    .keystore file is generated in %USERPROFILE% (Windows) or $HOME (Linux), and the file is protected with a password.

  2. Place the generated file in the CATALINA_BASE/external-conf folder (for example, C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat8.0\external-conf).
  3. Update CATALINA_BASE/conf/server.xml to enable HTTPS Connector.

    Note

    This section also includes the ciphers that fix the weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key error that you see with Google Chrome browsers. 


    Uncomment the following section, and update the section as follows (for example, add the keystoreFile path for keystore), and so on.

        <Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"
                   maxThreads="150" SSLEnabled="true" scheme="https" secure="true"
                   clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS"
                   ciphers="TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA256, 
                    TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256_P256, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256_P384,

                   sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1.2,TLSv1.1,TLSv1,SSLv2Hello"
  4. Restart the Tomcat server (SmartIT/MyIT Application).

  5. To check the configuration, open https://localhost:8443/ or https://localhost:8443/ux/myitapp in a browser.
    Upon initial access, a warning about an non-trusted certificate appears (because this is a self-signed certificate, not generated by a trusted CA).

  6. Click OK to continue.
    You should successfully be logged on to the MyIT application using SSL.
