Warning Message When Creating A Keystore (Doc ID 2376435.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 21, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle SOA Suite - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The error is tied to JDK.

Trying to create a keystore using jdk1.8.0_162 on Linux using the following command.

keytool -genkey -v -dname "CN=fqdn" -alias server_name -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -keystore identity.jks ...

This command worked fine in earlier versions of the JDK. While it works with this version, it does throw the following exzception.

The JKS keystore uses a proprietary format. It is recommended to migrate to PKCS12 which is an industry standard format using "keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore identity.jks -destkeystore identity.jks -deststoretype pkcs12".
