Procedure

  1. Start the Talend Remote Engine.
  2. Try accessing https://localhost:9004/configuration using a simple browser, for example, Firefox.

    If you get the following error message, the browser does not have the trusted certificate:

    An error occurred during a connection to localhost:9001.
    
    SSL peer cannot verify your certificate.
    
    (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_alert)
  3. Add the client certificate to the browser.

    Firefox supports the import of PKCS12 keystore. Therefore, you are going to "transform" the JKS keystore into a PKCS12 keystore:

    keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore clientKeystore.jks -srcstoretype JKS -destkeystore client.pfx -deststoretype PKCS12
    Enter destination keystore password:
    Re-enter new password:
    Enter source keystore password:
    Entry for alias clientkey successfully imported.
    Import command completed: 1 entries successfully imported, 0 entries failed or cancelled
  4. Import the client certificate to Firefox by clicking Tools > Options > Advanced.
  5. In the Certificates tab, click View Certificates.
  6. In the Your Certificates tab, click Import... and choose the client.pfx keystore file.
  7. Try accessing https://localhost:9004/configuration again.
    You will have access as a trusted client.
