Where ave you read that IIB does not support SSL?

Where have you read that you can't use more than one cert with HTTP in IIB?

The "authentication alias" field on the node properties is the cert label to use.

The OP did not say anything about IIB 10 not support SSL. The OP said he read it did not support S.N.I. (scripps network interactive protocol?) completely different animal...

Hello folks,
much thanks for your awesome responses.

I am seeking your help in establishing SN functionality for our HTTP Nodes. Upon researching it is understood that this can be achieved through 10.0.0.6 version. Could you please help us on that.

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IT14330

Background of the requirement is :

IIB has to reach out to the external server over the HTTPS server that has two certs through SSL Handshake to post some messages.

please let us know if there is a way this could be achieved with out changing the version. We currently have IIB 10.0.0.4 in our environment.

If the feature is not available until 10.0.0.6 do not even try to access it at 10.0.0.4 unless you have a PMR that delivers this functionality at your (lower) level...

Hi,
this is the exact error:

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: com.ibm.jsse2.util.j: PKIX path building failed: java.security.cert.CertPathBuilderException: PKIXCertPathBuilderImpl could not build a valid CertPath.; internal cause is:
java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: The certificate issued by CN=AddTrust External CA Root, OU=AddTrust External TTP Network, O=AddTrust AB, C=SE is not trusted; internal cause is:
java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: Certificate chaining error



an interesting link on the same: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21369939

There have been a good number of posts here with that very error.
If you search this forum using the google search box at the top right of the page and search for
Certificate chaining error

You may well find the cause of the problem.

Brilliant! the issue is now fixed.
We simply configured the other end certificate in iib trustore and restarted the broker! It worked..


Thanks everyone for your inputs!
Respect!

You should never add the other end's personal certificate to your truststore unless it is self-signed.

You should instead ensure that you have all the CA signer certificates needed (which may be a chain of them) in your truststore.

ok, i raised a PMR for SNI functionality and got to know this:




Self-signed certificates are the poor man's certificate and should only be used for testing purposes. You do not want to trust these certificates unless you know for certain that the end-point is trusted anyway. For example, some clients use them on their internal network. The reason is because anyone can duplicate this certificate and it no longer becomes secure. You should be using CA signed certificates in your truststore whenever you need to trust the other end such as client authentication or if you are the client.

I'm glad you got to know that before something bad happened. Be aware that adding a CA signed cert to a truststore is, as my worthy associate points out, a bad idea. Trust the signer not the cert.

I would point out that a "CA signed certificate" doesn't mean "signed by VeriSign". We use an internal CA to sign our internal certificates and reserve the use of externally signed certs (which cost money) when we're leaving the organization and need to prove ourselves to partners
