I have received a Bunch of SSL certificates that i need to install into tomcat servers, and normally this is easy enough. However, these certificates have had their private keys generated elsewhere and handed over with the private keys and all the SSL certificates.
Keytool doesn't allow me to import Private keys, directly so im unable to follow the standard process for generating a private key and then send it off to get the certificate. I have found another question 'https://stackoverflow.com/questions/906402/importing-an-existing-x509-certificate-and-private-key-in-java-keystore-to-use-i' which i was able to follow and managed to get the keystore kinda of working with Tomcat. However, it seems the intermediary certificates are somehow not associated properly and thus SSL Checks actually fail.
Heres is what i did:
- keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias Primary -file Primary.crt -keystore keystore.key
- keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias Secondary -file Secondary.crt -keystore keystore.key
- openssl pkcs12 -export -in domain.crt -inkey domain.key > server.p12
- keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore server.p12 -destkeystore keystore.key -srcstoretype pkcs12
So even though i have imported the primary and secondary intermediate certificates it seems they are not part of the chain with the imported pkcs12 generate certificate chain.
Error message that comes from SSL checker
