I am trying to connect to a server that requries mutual authentication. My trust store has the server's certificate as well as the root verisign certificate that it was signed with. My keystore has the client certificate and the private key.
Using this keystore and trust store I am able to successfully connect to the external server from one of my servers.
However the remote server responds with "This page requires a client certificate" when I send the request using the same keystore and trust store from a different server. command line: java -Djavax.net.debug=ssl -classpath $JAVA_CLASSPATH -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=/test/client.keystore -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=aaaaa123 -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=/test/cacerts -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=aaaaa123 SimpleTest
On turning on ssl debugging I do not see any exceptions, everything seems to be working as expected.
I don't understand this statement. If the server certificates are signed by verisign, then all your client needs to authenticate the server is verisign's root certificate in your truststore. Similarly, if the server wants your client to authenticate, then it will send a list of the DNs of CA it trusts. Your client certificate must be signed by one of those CAs. Finally, you should be able to see this happening in the debug trace, so I don't know what you mean when you say that the trace looks normal. Can you post the trace?
Nice to meet you.
