I have a certificate but I keep on getting the exception below.

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: unknown certificate
at com.ibm.jsse.bv.a(Unknown Source)
at com.ibm.jsse.bv.startHandshake(Unknown Source)
at com.guidant.apm.lpi.parser.HttpsSample2.main(HttpsSample2.java:84)

My sample code is below.

How do I (client) authenticate my self to the server with the certificate. Any help will be appreciated.

InputStream inStream = new FileInputStream("C:\\LPIworkspace\\LPI\\cert\\Paceart.cer");

CertificateFactory cf = CertificateFactory.getInstance("X.509");
X509Certificate cert = (X509Certificate) cf.generateCertificate(inStream);
inStream.close();
pub = (RSAPublicKey) cert.getPublicKey();
int port = 443;
String hostname = "emr-paceart";
SocketFactory socketFactory = SSLSocketFactory.getDefault();
SSLSocket socket = (SSLSocket)socketFactory.createSocket(hostname, port);
socket.startHandshake();
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
