Scripting Question

Script that will import .p12 cert into the Secure Settings area of the java store

04/22/2015 1270 views

I have tried using the keytool command, but that will only allow me to import the key into the cacerts area.  The cert needs to be in the Secure Sites area of the Java store.  Can someone assist with a script for the task below?


Java 1.6.65 - (highest support version by the vendor)

Java install location - program files (x86)

Windows 7 - x64

Steps to manually import the cert:

1.      Copy and paste file to your desktop.  Change the extension from rename to p12 (once import you can delete it)

2.      Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin

3.      Open file javacpl.exe

4.      In Java Control Panel

a.      Click Security tab > Certificates

b.      Change Certificate Type to Secure Site

c.      If blank, click Import

d.      Click file ‘name of cert’ from Desktop and click Open
