SSL with CACert.org


I just downloaded Jive Messenger yesterday and I’ve been very pleased with it. I got LDAP working with Win 2003 server. The next step is to get SSL working. I’m trying to create a signed certificate using CACert.org and each time I submit the certificate request, they tell me it is not valid and an error has occurred. Has anyone else had difficulties getting signed certs for this use?



Are you generating the CSR with the java keytool? If so, perhaps CACert.org is looking for an openssl-flavored CSR. Actually, not sure what the formatting difference would be for just the signing request… But you can create that and try it, and if it works, there’'s a way to transform the resulting collected bits into a java keystore.
