3 Simple Steps to Install Certificate in Java
In java all the certificates should be installed in the below file:
Path and version vary based on your own system configuration, path where you installed and version what you installed.
You can find a file named “cacerts” which is the one will have all the certificate details installed on this particular jre.
Step 1: Path of the certificate storage
As I mentioned
is the path where we need to install our certificates.
Step 2: Verifying the certificate
Verify the certificate whether it is already installed or not using the below command:
keytool -v -list -keystore PATH_OF_CACERTS >> Existing_Certificates.txt
keytool -v -list -keystore C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_111\lib\security\cacerts >> Existing_Certificates.txt
[Here I am exporting all the console output to Existing_Certificates.txt file just for backup and reference].
Step 3: Install your certificate
Sample cert name: xxx.yyy.zzz.cer
install – keytool -import -alias javadomain -keystore cacerts -file PATH_OF_THE_CERTIFICATE_WHICH_NEEDS_TO_INSTALLED
install – keytool -import -alias javadomain -keystore cacerts -file c:\certificates\xxx.yyy.zzz.cer
Now you have successfully installed the certificates. You can verify whether your certificate is exist or not by doing the step 2 again.
If you do not have access to the security\cacerts path, then you can do,
You can install certificate in some path, say d:\certificates\ then you can import.
Create a file named cacerts inside d:\certificates first,
“C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_45\bin\keytool.exe” -importcert -alias javadomain -file d:\certificates\xxx.yyy.zzz.cer -keystore cacerts
“C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_45\bin\keytool.exe” -list -keystore d:\certificates\cacerts
In Eclipse in the Args on (Run As -> Configuration)
Or you can add in your code this way,
Default password is changeit, if the password is different correct it above.
