Keystore (keyStore)

A repository of security certificates used for SSL encryption.

NameTypeDefaultDescription

fileBased

boolean

true

Specify true if the keystore is file based and false if the keystore is a SAF keyring or hardware keystore type.

id

string

defaultKeyStore

A unique configuration ID.

location

A file, directory or url.

${server.output.dir}/resources/security/key.p12

An absolute or relative path to the keystore file. If a relative path is provided, the server will attempt to locate the file in the ${server.output.dir}/resources/security directory. Use the keystore file for a file-based keystore, the keyring name for SAF keyrings, or the device configuration file for hardware cryptography devices. In the SSL minimal configuration, the location of the file is assumed to be ${server.output.dir}/resources/security/key.jks.

password

Reversably encoded password (string)

The password used to load the keystore file. The value can be stored in clear text or encoded form. Use the securityUtility tool to encode the password.

pollingRate

A period of time with millisecond precision

500ms

Rate at which the server checks for updates to a keystore file. Specify a positive integer followed by a unit of time, which can be hours (h), minutes (m), seconds (s), or milliseconds (ms). For example, specify 500 milliseconds as 500ms. You can include multiple values in a single entry. For example, 1s500ms is equivalent to 1.5 seconds.

readOnly

boolean

false

Specify true if the keystore is to be used by the server for reading and false if write operations will be performed by the server on the keystore.

type

string

PKCS12

A keystore type supported by the target SDK.

updateTrigger

  • disabled

  • mbean

  • polled

mbean

Keystore file update method or trigger.
disabled
Disables all update monitoring. Changes to the keystore file will not be applied while the server is running.
mbean
Server will only update the keystore when prompted by the FileNotificationMbean. The FileNotificationMbean is typically called by an external program such as an integrated development environment or a management application.
polled
Server will scan for keystore file changes at the polling interval and update if the keystore file has detectable changes.

keyEntry

A unique configuration ID.

NameTypeDefaultDescription

id

string

A unique configuration ID.

keyPassword

Reversably encoded password (string)

Password of the private key entry in the keystore.

name

string

Name of the private key entry in the keystore.
