I am getting following exception when I am trying to make the connection to a secure site using a servlet. I am using iplanet web server/app server and connecting to an external site which is on https.
"rkumar007", please check out our naming policy and amend your display name accordingly. Thanks. What this means is that the site certificate is not signed by a trusted CA (Certificate Authority) such as VeriSign or Thawte. Does a browser such as Internet Explorer issue a warning for the site? If so, it simply does not have a bona fide certificate. If not, then it is probably the fact that IE/NS/etc ship with many more trusted CA certificates than the Sun JDK; you could try adding the appropriate CA by exporting its certificate from your browser and using keytool to import it into jre/lib/security/cacerts (assuming that iPlanet does not force another cacerts file). - Peter [ October 10, 2002: Message edited by: Peter den Haan ]
