Hi guys, i've recieved a PKCS12 file which contains a certificate and private key that i am supposed to extract. As im new to certificates and the whole PKI infrastructure i attempted to write a small program to try and view the contents of the PKCS#12 file.
A password is required to retrieve the certificate and the private key from the pkcs12 file. A password was provided to me and the instructions state that the password is the MD5 hash of the password that was provided to me.
I am having two weid prolems with this implementation. If i run this class on a JDK1.5 VM the password is rejected with the following error.
I am not sure why it is insisting that the password should be ASCII. Does anyone know why this is the case?
If i run the same class on JDK 1.4, i can open the PKCS12 file so the password is accepted. as shown below
The exception in 1.4 is to do with this line i think
I havent found out the resolution to the above problem but im a bit worried on teh error if i ran it on 1.5. As i dont have control of the format of the password, i cant just change it to be an ASCII password. Is there a way i can get it to accept a non-ascii password?
