Export certificate from Apache to Tomcat
To move a certificate from Apache to Tomcat please do the following:
1. Switch the Certificate from Apache format to Tomcat 5.x format by issuing the following command using OpenSSL:
YourIntermediateCertificate.cer is the Thawte Intermediate CA available for download here: INFO1384
YourThawteSSLCert.crt is your current openssl certificate.
YourPrivateKey.key is your current private key.
The exported keystore will be in 'mycert.p12'
Configuring Tomcat to use the new p12 file
1. Open %TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml in XML or text editor
2. Uncomment the SSL Connector if it is not uncommented already
3. Add the following attributes:
4. Restart Tomcat
Point the browser to https://localhost:8443. If it doesn’t load look in the log files to identify the problem.
Note: PKCS12 keystore type is only supported with JDK 1.5.x+
If this fails and you cannot get Tomcat to use the Apache key and certificate you will need to generate a new key and CSR for Tomcat and replace your certificate directly for the Tomcat software as shown in solution: SO470
