    How to set up SSL for JBoss AS 7.1.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 Server with openssl

    Lisa Baumann Newbie

      I tried to set up SSL for an JBoss AS 7.1.1 installation on a Ubuntu 12.04 server. I have already generated a private key (.pem) and a certificate signing request (.csr) with openssl, submitted it to a CA and got the signed certificate file (.pem) back.

      Now, I tried already different ways how to set up SSL for my JBoss, e.g. after the instructions on https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS71/SSL+setup+guide. This looks as follows:


        <connector name="https" scheme="https" protocol="HTTP/1.1" socket-binding="https" enable-lookups="false" secure="true">

          <ssl name="foo-ssl" password="secret" certificate-key-file="../standalone/configuration/foo.pem" certificate-file="../standalone/configuration/foo-cert.pem"/>



      Unfortunately, during start up of JBoss AS, the following error is thrown and the https connector is not started:

      Caused By: LifecycleException: protocol handler initialization failed: java.lang.Exception: Unable to load certificate key .../foo.pem (error: 06074079: digital envelope routines: EVP_PBE_CipherInit: unknown pbe algorithm)

      Can anybody help me to solve this error? Thanks in advance!
