Importing SSL certificates to Trust Keystore

As you would be using GMAIL, for incoming messages, you have to import gmail ssl certificates to weblogic trust store.

  1. Download the Gmail IMAP and SMTP certificates. This can be done with OpenSSL by running the following from command prompt:

OpenSSL2. Copy the contents from –Begin Certificate– to –End Certificate– and create two text files as smtp.txt and imap.txt which contains certificates generated using openssl for SMTP and IMAP respectively.

3. Using Java Keytool, import the two certificates into trust store. You can create a new store. However we would use the exisitng DemoTrust.jks trust store. DemoTrust.jks trust store can be found at %WL_HOME%/server/lib/DemoTrust.jks and the keeytool is available @ %JAVA_HOME%/bin.

4. Use following command to import certificates to trust store-

keytool  -import -alias AliasName -keystore KeystoreLocation -file CertificateLocation

For Our example use –

keytool -import -alias gmailimap -keystore C:\Oracle\Middleware\wlserver\server\lib\DemoTrust.jks -file imap.txt

keytool -import -alias gmailsmtp -keystore C:\Oracle\Middleware\wlserver\server\lib\DemoTrust.jks -file smtp.txt

5. Enter “DemoTrustKeyStorePassPhrase” when prompt for DemoTrust store password.
