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 you previously created keystores. However, the Adeptia Suite will treat treats all of your previous truststores as keystores.
You can create a keystore either manually or by uploading a keystore file. If you want to To manually create a keystore then, you need to provide information for many fields. You can find the description about these fields in the table below.Table 1: Description of Keystore Fieldsconfigure the fields given in the following table :
Enter a password of your keystore that you want to set
Confirm the password of your keystore
Private Key Password
Enter a password of your private key that you want to set
Confirm the password of your private key
Enter a name for the identity of the keystore that you are creating
Select an algorithm to encrypt your keystore. You can choose from either DSA or RSA
Specify the encryption key size of the encryption algorithm. The minimum size for DSA is 512 and for RSA is 1024 but we recommend you to use an algorithm of at least 1024 and 2048 key size respectively.
Enter a name that you want to associate with the generated certificate, like a name of a person, e.g. "Susan Jones".
Name of the organization unit where you work
Name of your organization
Locality of your organization
State where your organization is situated
Country where your organization is located
Enter the number of days for which your keystore will be valid.
Select an algorithm to encrypt your signature. You can choose from SHA1 with DSA, SHA1 with RSA, MD5 with RSA, and RIPEMD160 with RSA.
