Adeptia Suite enables you to create separate Keystores and Truststores. A keystore is collection of certificates and private keys. You can use a keystore with your security policies and web service consumer activities. Keystore stores your certificates and private keys that you can give to your client. Whereas, a Truststore stores all your trusted parties' certificates. Adeptia Suite also allows backward compatibility to support all previously created keystores. However, the Adeptia Suite treats all previous truststores as keystores.

You can create a keystore either manually or by uploading a keystore file. To manually create a keystore configure the fields given in the following table :

Keystore Fields

Confirm the password of your private key

Alias

Enter a name for the identity of the keystore that you are creating

Key Algorithm

Select an algorithm to encrypt your keystore. You can choose from either DSA or RSA

  5. In the Creation Mode field, select the Upload radio button if you want to create a keystore by uploading a keystore file. Or select the Manual radio button if you want to manually configure a keystore.

    If you select the Upload radio button then, follow step 6. Alternatively if you select the Manual radio button then, follow 7 - 10 steps.

  6. In the Upload KeyStore field, select the Browse button. In the Choose File to Upload dialog box, navigate to your PKCS12 or JKS keystore file type and select the Open button to upload your keystore file. 

    If you select a keystore file with no extension then, from the Keystore Type dropdown list select the type of keystore.

  8. Enter the private key password in Private Key Password and Confirm Password text boxes.
  9. Enter the values in all the fields as per your requirement and click Save. This action will create a keystore and the private public key pair inside the keystore.

     

  10. Click the Save button to save the keystore.

The Adeptia Suite does not support keystore with multiple key entries.


Steps to create a Truststore

  1. Click the Develop tab and then click Services > Security > Keystore/Truststore. This action will show you the Manage Keystore/Truststore screen.

     

  2. Click the Create New link. This action will show you the Create New Keystore/Truststore screen.

  5. In the Upload TrustStore field, select the Browse button. In the Choose File to Upload dialog box, navigate to your JKS truststore file type and select the Open button to upload your truststore file.

    Truststore only supports JKS file type.

  6. Enter the password to access a truststore in the TrustStore Password textbox.
  7. Enter the confirmation password in the Confirm Password textbox.

    When you upload a single certificate and enter a password for it then we are creating a truststore.
    You can create a truststore with a single certificate.

  8. Click the Save button to save the truststore.
