Karaf container SSL-CA

Karaf container SSL-CA

Hi!

I want to have ssl certificate using the talend runtime with apache Karaf but I don't want to have a self-signed certificate just like this tutorial shows: https://help.talend.com/reader/yovCMqvJzyaSSSIdrlB4FQ/YS2qpyciSmqGw1eFT08J1Q

 

"These key are self-signed. In a production system, you should use a Certificate Authority (CA)."

What software should I use to create a CA and how should I configure it with karaf? I am using an azure virtual machine.

 

I would appreciate some help. I am lost with SSL stuff, thanks!

Re: Karaf container SSL-CA

Hi!

 

While I've not tried it using Karaf, I use properly authenticated certificates on my website from

 

https://letsencrypt.org/

 

which are free, but only last a month. However, you can easily automate the certificate updating process. Way better than self-certification as no browser trusts that anymore.

 

Hope this helps,
