Importing SSL certs to Coldfusion Railo OR Lucee keystore

If you are having the below error:
Railo 3.3.4.003 Error (javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException)
Messagesun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
Causejavax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException


This means you are trying to invoke an https webservice. to invoke an SSL webserver you need to import the certificate into Railo by using keytool command. Below are the steps on how to do this:

1- use fire fox to open the webservice and click on the padlock as shown on the below image:

2-Click on more information as below:
 3- Click on View Certificate as below:
4-Click on details as below:
 5- Now export the certificate and save it to your computer with .cer extension.

6- Search in railo folder for the keytool command location, in my case it was under railo\jdk\bin

7-  Search in railo folder for the cacerts location, in my case it was under railo\lib\railo-server\context\sec
urity\cacerts

8- Now run the command as below:

RAILO
d:\railo\jdk\bin>keytool -import -keystore D:\railo\lib\railo-server\context\security\cacerts -alias xyz  -file d:\mcjvaplng.cer -storepass changeit -noprompt
 LUCEE
d:\lucee\jdk\bin>keytool -import -keystore D:\lucee\lib\lucee-server\context\security\cacerts -alias xyz  -file d:\certificatename.cer -storepass changeit -noprompt
You will see a message saying:

Certificate was added to keystore


Restart railo/lucee service and your done.

9- If you want to remove unused or unneeded certificate please run the below command:


D:\railo\jdk\bin>keytool -delete -keystore D:\railo\lib\railo-server\context\security\cacerts -alias xyz -storepass changeit

  1. I used the same exact thing on linux and it worked. I didn't have to navigate to the bin directory either, i just typed the word keytool and it worked from the home directory.
