## Add Self-Signed SSL Certificate

  • Now create the SSL Certificate in Windows using Keytool.

  • Create the .jks file by running the following command in C:/. `C:\> keytool -genkey -alias searchblox -keyalg RSA -keystore "C:\searchblox.jks" -keysize 2048`


  • Enter the following details: Enter keystore password: Re-enter new password: What is your first and last name? [Unknown]: JJ What is the name of your organizational unit? [Unknown]: CS What is the name of your organization? [Unknown]: SB What is the name of your City or Locality? [Unknown]: KTYM What is the name of your State or Province?

Important Note

  • JKS keystore uses a proprietary format. It is always recommended to migrate to PKCS12, which is an industry standard format, using the command: `keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore C:\searchblox.jks -destkeystore C:\searchblox.jks -deststoretype pkcs12`

  • Now convert the .jks file into .pfx format by running the command: `C:\>keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore "C:\searchblox.jks" -destkeystore "C:\searchblox.p12" -srcstoretype JKS -deststoretype PKCS12 -deststorepass admin@1234 -srcalias Searchblox -destalias Searchblox`


  • The result is: `Importing keystore C:\searchblox.jks to C:\searchblox.p12… Enter source keystore password:`
