Last updated on OCTOBER 08, 2021

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document provides the step by step instruction to update the certificates in the default_keystore.jks to use a signature algorithm having a key size greater than 1024.

In the older versions of Oracle Identity Manager, the out of the box default_keystore.jks used internally for the OWSM WS-Policies (which are attached to the callback for OIM approval composites) contains MD5withRSA certificates with a key size of 1024.
Newer JDKs do not accept these certificates.  Specifically, starting with JDK 1.6.0_101+, JDK 1.7.0_40+, Or JRockit R28.3.7+
