Configuring key certificates from the messaging services key database

Configuring a key certificate is crucial for configuring Java keystore files or C applications.

To configure key certificates for applications that use either the C or Java programming languages:
  1. Create either a self-signed certificate or issue certificate request to obtain a certificate from a pre-defined (well-known) certificate authority. If you obtain a certificate from a certificate authority, add it to the opened key database file.
  2. Choose the certificate that you just added to the opened key database, then click.
  3. Make sure that the data type is Base 64-encoded ASCII data.
  4. Specify the location and the file name of the certificate file, then click OK.
  5. Click Key Database File > Close.
