Import an Existing Keypair into the Keystore with PFX File

I am trying to go off the App Dynamics documentation for Importing an Existing Keypair into the Keystore found here: https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/Controller+SSL+and+Certificates

 

This assumes that we have the following files:

  • private key: private.key
  • signed public key: cert.crt
  • CA root chain: ca.crt

Do directions exist if I am working from a PFX file? 

 

I did try to pull the .key and .crt file from the PFX file already.  This resulted in an error when I attempted to follow the instructions in the link.

Hi Thomas,

 

If you already have a PFX file with the private key and the personal cert and the chain, then you should be able to just move straight to step 2 in the instructions documented here.

  • keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore <.pfx> -srcstoretype pkcs12 -destkeystore keystore.jks -deststoretype JKS


.p12 and .pfx are both PKCS #12 files.

Please do make sure that you change the password for the private key so that it is the same password as the keystore as outlined in step 8.

 

In case you do want or need to convert certificates, please see the link here which covers how to convert certificates of varying formats.

Regards,

Sam
