Importing a certificate into cacerts.p12

To establish secure communications with a remote server (such as a remote LDAP server), you must import a certificate into the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On truststore, cacerts.p12. The certificate must be in printable DER format (file extension .pem) or in binary DER format (file extensions .cer.crt, or .der).

Note

For high-availability (HA) installations, you must import the certificate on each node.

The following topics provide information and instructions for importing a certificate into the truststore:

Before you begin

Before you import the certificate into the cacerts.p12 file, you must delete the existing alias from the cacerts.p12 file by using the following parameters:

keytool -delete -alias <SERVER_NAME> -keyalg RSA -keystore cacerts.p12 -storepass changeit -storetype PKCS12 -providername JsafeJCE
  • <SERVER_NAME> — The name of the server on which BMC Atrium SSO is installed

  • <storepass> — The password used to authenticate the truststore certificate. The default truststore password is changeit.

To import a certificate in Microsoft Windows

  1. Copy the signed certificate file into the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On server conf directory:
    <installationDirectory>\BMC Software\AtriumSSO\tomcat\conf
  2. On the command line, change the working directory to
    <installationDirectory>\BMC Software\AtriumSSO\tomcat\conf.
  3. Modify the environment to use the Java Development Kit (JDK) that is installed with BMC Atrium Single Sign-On:
    set PATH=<installationDirectory>\jdk\bin;%PATH%
  4. Run the keytool utility with the following parameters:

    keytool -importcert -trustcacerts -alias <SERVER_FQDN> -keyalg RSA -keystore %CATALINA_HOME%\conf\cacerts.p12  -keypass changeit -storepass changeit -storetype PKCS12 -providername JsafeJCE -file <certificatefilename>
    • <SERVER_NAME> — The name of the server on which BMC Atrium SSO is installed

    • <certificatefilename> — The name of the certificate file; for example, cert_name.cer

      Note

      This keytool utility is based on a default installation. Other values might be needed if BMC Atrium Single Sign-On was installed in an external Tomcat container or if the default truststore has been altered.

  5. Stop and restart the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On server.

To import a certificate in UNIX

  1. Copy the signed certificate file into the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On server conf directory:
    <installationDirectory>/BMC Software/AtriumSSO/tomcat/conf
  2. On the command line, change the working directory to
    <installationDirectory>/BMC Software/AtriumSSO/tomcat/conf.
  3. Modify the environment to use the JDK installed with BMC Atrium Single Sign-On:
    PATH=<installationDirectory>/jdk/bin:$PATH;export PATH
  4. Run the keytool utility with the following parameters:

    keytool -importcert -trustcacerts -alias <SERVER_NAME> -keyalg RSA -keystore $CATALINA_HOME/conf/cacerts.p12 -keypass changeit -storepass changeit -storetype PKCS12 -providername JsafeJCE -file <certificatefilename>
    • <SERVER_NAME> — The name of the server on which BMC Atrium SSO is installed

    • <certificatefilename> — The name of the certificate file; for example, cert_name.cer

      Note

      This keytool utility is based on a default installation. Other values might be needed if BMC Atrium Single Sign-On was installed in an external Tomcat container or if the default truststore has been altered.

  5. Stop and restart the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On server.

Example of importing a new certificate to the truststore

-importcert -keystore cacerts.p12 -trustcacerts -alias tomcat -keypass truststore_password –storepass truststore_password –file mykey.cer -storetype PKCS12
-providername JsafeJCE
