Re: [iaik-jce] Get a cert chain from Netscape Certificate Server

You can parse a X.509 certificate in PEM format (surrounded by "------BEGIN
CERTIFICATE----" "------END CERTIFICATE----" ) in the normal way by only
invoking the corresponding constructor of class iaik.x509.X509Certificate.
It automatically will recognize and handle the base64 encoding.

Subject: [iaik-jce] Get a cert chain from Netscape Certificate Server

Hi all.

I succefully made a request to Netscape Certificate Server from a
stand-alone application (by using both iSaSiLk and IAIK-JCE).
If I know the serial number of the certificate,  how can I get the
certificate ?
I tried to do this (also from a stand-alone application) by requesting
the URL
where num is the serial number of the issued certificate. Then I parsed
the script section of the html response to find the value
certChainBase64 (wich is the string printed in the html document between
"------BEGIN CERTIFICATE----" and "------END CERTIFICATE------").
How can I obtain my certificate from this string? Is this the rigth way
to get a certificate from Netscape Certificate Server?

Thanks in advance
