Create a keystore for SOAPUI from a .p7b file
I had to use SOAPUI to send some requests to a SOAP API at work the other day, and the API in question required the use of a certificate. I had the required certificate in a .p7b file, as well as the private key in a .key file, but those can’t be used directly with SOAPUI. I had to create a keystore and populate that keystore with my certificate (and private key). Unfamiliar with certificates that I was (and still am), I tried a bunch of different things suggested by the top google-results for queries such as “create keystore from p7b”. What finally worked was this recipe. Here are the steps:
Convert the .p7b file to a .pem file:
openssl pkcs7 -print_certs -in file.p7b -out file.pem
Export the .pem file with the private key to a .p12 file:
openssl pkcs12 -export -name aliasName -in file.pem -inkey file.key -out file.p12
file.keyis the private key.
Import the .p12 file to a new keystore:
keytool -importkeystore -srcstoretype pkcs12 -srckeystore file.p12 -destkeystore file.jks
The result of these three commands in that I have a keystore in the file
file.jks that can be used with SOAPUI:
The password is the password you entered when running the
keytool -importkeystore-command above.
