OUD 12c - How to Retrieve the Keystore PIN as of April 2021 Bundle Patch (Doc ID 2903569.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As stated in the Admin Guide, the .pin files containing the keystore/truststore PIN are no longer supported.

From this release onward, the PIN needed to access a truststore or keystore is stored in an encrypted format inside the key-store-pin or trust-store-pin attribute of the corresponding configuration entry within Oracle Unified Directory.

In earlier releases, PIN files contained passwords in cleartext format. The mechanism of providing password is no longer supported. In addition, keystore or truststore configuration attributes such as trust-store-pin-file, trust-store-pin-property, and trust-store-pin-environment-variable, key-store-pin-file, key-store-pin-property, and key-store-pin-environment varliable are no longer referred while getting pin value.
