    SSL Configuration - import Certificate, Chain Certificate

    Nicole Müller Novice



      I´ve created a server certificate with OpenSSL.


      "openssl genrsa -out myserver.key 2048"

      Then I created the request-file for my Certificate:

      openssl req -batch -config myserver.cfg -new -key myserver.key -out myserver.csr"

      I have got now the following files:

      certificate.pem      myserver.csr    myserver.key


      In the documentation I found the following:


      • Import the Chain Certificate into your keystore
        • keytool -import -alias root -keystore <your_keystore_filename> \ -trustcacerts -file <filename_of_the_chain_certificate>
      • And finally import your new Certificate
        • keytool -import -alias tomcat -keystore <your_keystore_filename> \ -file <your_certificate_filename>


      My questions:

      What is  <your_keystore_filename>?  And what is <filename_of_the_chain_certificate>?

      Thanks a lot
