Using Orapki as Certificate Authority (Doc ID 1489301.1)

Last updated on MARCH 16, 2018

Applies to:

Advanced Networking Option - Version 10.2.0.4 to 12.1.0.2 [Release 10.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

 A certificate authority or CA is a trusted entity that signs and issues digital certificates. Orapki can easily be used to emulate a larger scale pki environment for proof of concept testing or even smaller scale implementations where a rigid pki setup may not be needed.

The orapki utility is a command line tool that you can use to manage certificate revocation lists (CRLs), create and manage Oracle wallets, and to create signed certificates for testing purposes.

Scope

This step by step example first creates a self signed certificate pair loaded into a wallet that will act as the CA. Once the CA is in place it can be used to sign certificate requests for different users and applications that require unique SSL certificates for pkcs12 wallets.
