RE: [iaik-jce] Netscape Certs



Thank you for replying Dieter.

So, There's no real automatic way to handle this, like the way Netscape's
crypto.signText handles it.

Doing it by exporting the certificate, does that mean that the client
browser needs to do this before any transactions occur?

I posed a different question earlier and I have also seen many similar
questions on this board, about whether it is possible to take the B64 output
from crypto.signText and use SignedDataStream to obtain the origional signed
datafor verification.   I tried most of the suggestions, but for some
reason, I get nothing from the signed data string actually being inserted
into the SignedDataStream class or ASN1Object class, no matter how I go
about doing it.

When I decode the B64 String, I get what looks like a certificate, granted,
much of it is binary, with VeriSign strings in it.   This usually proves
invalid though.

Have you any suggestions?

Thanks a million,

Kevin

You cannot immediately extract cert/key from a browser with IAIK software.
But you can export it from the browser into a file and later use PKCS12,
PKCS7CertList, or X509Certificate classes for reading in certs from a file.

Probably a silly question, I know, but I've never worked with browsers
before.

Is it possible to extract the browser certificate using the IAIK kit?

If so, how would one go about doing it?

Regards,

Kevin
