OpenDJ: Changing server certificates

ForgeRock Logo The default validity period for OpenDJ self-signed certificates used to be 730 days. Those of you who generated keys & self-signed certificates a couple of years ago could have certificates that will expire soon.

There’s a new chapter in the Administration Guide that covers Changing Server Certificates, including not only replacing the keys for regular connection handlers, but also generating new keys & self-signed certs used to protect replication traffic.

You will find the Configuring Connection Handlers chapter has been beefed up with more examples of manipulating certificates using the Java keytool command, including CA-signed certificates. Plus, the Performing LDAP Operations chapter now also demonstrates Authenticating Using a Certificate, showing the steps to have an application, for example, authenticate without a user name and password.
