Keytool and self signed certificates for IS


Has anyone used keytool to generate a self signed certificate for IS?

I have IS 4.6… and I’m trying to setup an HTTPS listener… the documentation says to use the Certificate Tool Kit… but currently I’m having a problem installing it… so I decided to go with the keytool.exe provided by Sun… IS requires 3 certificates:

Server’s Signed Certificate
Signing CA’s Certificate
Server’s Private Key

Can anyone tell me how I generate these using the keytool in der format?

I want a self signed certificate just to get going with my proof of concept that requires SSL…


This might help you a little bit…


Other keystore utilities that can help make working with keystores a bit easier:


If you want to replace keytool with a GUI tool then you can also use CERTivity.
