Keystore and Credential Store interplay in OWSM - 11g
By Prakash Yamuna on Mar 17, 2012
One of the most common problems faced by customer's is the use of the keystore and it's interplay with the credential store.Here is a picture that describes these relationships.(Click on the picture for a larger image). The picture makes some assumptions in describing the relationship. Some of assumptions are:
a) the key used for signing and encryption are the same.
b) A keystore can have multiple keys and each key can have it's own alias. In the picture I show only a single key with alias "orakey".
c) The keystore being described here is a JKS keystore. Things can vary slightly for other type of keystores.
I hope to have a detailed How To that provides the larger picture and then shows these relationships in that context and this picture was created in the context of that How-To. However I think people will find this picture useful on a standalone basis as well. The <serviceInstance> is the entry you will find in jps-config.xml
