Re: [iaik-ssl] KeyandCertificate format

X.509 certificates are handled by class iaik.x509.X509Certificate. The
KeyAndCertificate class only provides a way for holding a certificate
together with its private key. It has been introduced by early IAIK-JCE
versions where PKCS#12 had not worked properly. But it is not correct, that
JCE2.0 and SSL only accept KeyAndCertificate format. Beside
iaik.x509.X509Certificate and iaik.utils.KeyAndCertificate IAIK-JCE2.0 also
is able to handle PKCS#7 cert lists (class iaik.pkcs.PKCS7CertList).
However, the PKCS#12 implementation of IAIK-JCE 2.0 had some known bugs
which have been removed in later versions.

Subject: [iaik-ssl] KeyandCertificate format


I am using the iaik JCE2.0 and SSL in conjunction with ORBacus. One problem
I have is that this older version of JCE and SSL only accepts
keyandCertificate format. Is that correct ? Is there some existing classes
lying somewhere which I can use to read a X.509 certificate and convert it
to keyandcertificate format ?

Thank you
