Common Java KeyTool Commands

Java Keytool Commands for Creating and Importing

The commands below allow you to generate a new Java Keytool keystore file, create a CSR, and import certificates. Any root or intermediate certificates will need to be imported before importing the primary certificate for your domain.

  • Generate a Java keystore and key pair
    keytool -genkey -alias mydomain -keyalg RSA -keystore keystore.jks -keysize 2048
  • Generate a certificate signing request (CSR) for an existing Java keystore
    keytool -certreq -alias mydomain -keystore keystore.jks -file mydomain.csr
  • Import a root or intermediate CA certificate to an existing Java keystore
    keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias root -file Thawte.crt -keystore keystore.jks
  • Import a signed primary certificate to an existing Java keystore
    keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias mydomain -file mydomain.crt -keystore keystore.jks
  • Generate a keystore and self-signed certificate
    keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -alias selfsigned -keystore keystore.jks -storepass password -validity 360 -keysize 2048

Java Keytool Commands for Checking

Use these commands to check the information within a certificate or Java keystore.

  • Check a stand-alone certificate
    keytool -printcert -v -file mydomain.crt
  • Check which certificates are in a Java keystore
    keytool -list -v -keystore keystore.jks
  • Check a particular keystore entry using an alias
    keytool -list -v -keystore keystore.jks -alias mydomain

Other Java Keytool Commands

  • Delete a certificate from a Java Keytool keystore
    keytool -delete -alias mydomain -keystore keystore.jks
  • Change a Java keystore password
    keytool -storepasswd -new new_storepass -keystore keystore.jks
  • Export a certificate from a keystore
    keytool -export -alias mydomain -file mydomain.crt -keystore keystore.jks
  • List Trusted CA Certs
    keytool -list -v -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts
  • Import New CA into Trusted Certs
    keytool -import -trustcacerts -file /path/to/ca/ca.pem -alias CA_ALIAS -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts

EnterpriseOne Business Services (BSSV) Error: Security Token Failed To Validate

Every once in a while we get the following error on a system that interacts with EnterpriseOne using business services (BSSV).

Security token failed to validate. weblogic.xml.crypto.wss.SecurityTokenValidateResult@2eba8ea[status: false][msg UNT Error:Message Created time past the current time even accounting for set clock skew]

Fortunately, until today, this error was always received when using our test environment and we couldn’t get it to be consistent so it went unresolved. Well, today was the day it hit production. So, after a little research I was able to find the solution:

  1. Login to the Weblogic Serve Administration Console
  2. Click Environment
  3. Click Servers
  4. Click the server you want to work with
  5. Click the [Configuration] tab
  6. Click the [Server Start] tab
  7. Add the following to the Arguments textarea:

Oracle JDEdwards Tools Release 9.1.5 Is Now Available

Description of Figure 3-1 follows

This is no ordinary Tools Release! With all the changes, this should really be called TR 9.2.0.

Lets start breaking this down a little

  1. A new look, called Alta (see image above). This brings JDEdwards more in line with the rest of Oracle’s application offerings with the same look and feel.
  2. Server-only packages and the Primary Server
  3. Recent Breadcrumbs: You can view breadcrumb history which is available even after you log off/on.
  4. Email and Calendar Integration: Personally, I think the advantage of this feature will really be for user support rather than user collaboration.
  5. Simplified Navigation: seems to restrict users to just using E1Pages for navigation.
  6. Clustering for Outbound Business Services
  7. In-Memory Merge to Tools 9.1.5 Code Line
  8. Application Stack Service for Mobile Applications Development

Latest Nucleus Research ERP Value Matrix Finds Oracle JDEdwards Maintain Leadership

In a Market of Innovation, Sage and Oracle PeopleSoft struggle to keep up

Nucleus ERP Value Matrix: Oralce JDEdwards Maintains Leadership
THE BOTTOM LINE: Enterprise application vendors have continued to invest in making their applications more usable, as buyers expect support for broader user productivity and enablement. With leaders accelerating the pace of releases focused on user interface (UI), mobile, and in-application data to align themselves with Dark Cockpit principles, others have been challenged just to maintain their position.

BOSTON – November 6, 2014 – Nucleus Research has released the enterprise resource planning (ERP) Technology Value Matrix for the second half of 2014, showing significant shifts in positioning as vendors increase their investments in usability and functionality. Value Matrix leaders are also noticeably accelerating the cadence of release cycles with a focus on user interface (UI), mobile, and in-application data.

“Leaders in this Matrix continue to make significant investments in new user interfaces, embedded analytics, and industry-specific functionality that accelerate time to value and drive greater user productivity,” said Rebecca Wettemann, VP of research at Nucleus Research. “Significant investments by leaders are increasing the gaps between leaders and laggards and challenging others to increase their investment just to keep up.”

In addition to industry capabilities that drive faster time to value and embedded in-memory capabilities that make new realms of decision making possible, leaders are investing in new opportunities to make data richer and more current with Internet of things (IOT) initiatives and targeted, optimized mobile applications.

“We’re seeing IOT emerge as an area where ERP customers can drive greater automation, much richer data for decision making, and more proactive and predictive business execution,” said Anne Moxie, analyst at Nucleus Research. “Innovators are targeting key verticals and processes with roadmaps and partnerships that make IOT benefits a reality instead of just a shiny object.”

Reflecting the advances in ERP, this Value Matrix highlights vendors that have further increased application usability and delivered embedded analytics and industry best practices that support better decision making. In contrast, non-leaders such as Oracle PeopleSoft are being challenged just to maintain their position despite investments in areas such as toolkits and incremental industry functionality. Nucleus also noted several significant shifts from vendors such as QAD and IFS, who moved into the expert quadrant based on their functionality investments.
