Tried to apply a public CACert certificate for the DavLink.jar so that users know whom to trust when adding their security exception.

  • Opened account on www.cacert.org

  • Created new client certificate

  • Installed into FF from link provided by www.cacert.org

  • Exported from FF as file t:dataluccacertCAcertWoTUser.crt using Certificate Manager (Options ‣ Advanced ‣ Encryption ‣ Your Certificates ‣ View ‣ Details ‣ Export

  • Imported into java keystore using:

    keytool -import -file t:\data\luc\cacert\CAcertWoTUser.crt -alias luc -trustcacerts
    

No success yet. Difficult to document. Here are some notes:

jarsigner: Certificate chain not found for: luc.  luc must reference a valid KeyStore key entry containing a private key and corresponding public key certificate chain.


T:\hgwork\lino\java>keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore t:\data\luc\cacert\luc.p12 -srcstoretype PKCS12
