move ssl from ibm httpserver to apache on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3


Has anyone moved their SSL cert from an IBM http server (websphere 5.0) to apache 2.0.46?
Please point me to the right direction.

Thanks in advance!

a cert is a cert bro...just put it in the right location as asked by httpd.conf and setup apache for SSL. Restart apache and you should be good to go. If the cert is set by IP or FQDN make sure you change the server to match the o= in the cert to avoid the pop-up warnings.

hi thank you for your response. I am a newbie to setting up SSL on apache. I don't know how to point to my exisiting key because the key we have from our IBM http server is a kdb file. How do I export that into the .crt & .key format that mod_ssl is looking for?

couple of different way. since I am familiar with the gsk I would suggest using the IBM supplied global security kit or gsk. Not sure what version you are but the command is gsk4ikm (replace the 4 with your version number, could be 5, 6 or 7) . How to use the gsk is a bit much for this thread but the websphere dos should have enough info. you can export everything you nedd from there.

Actually if you got the key from a CA (Thawte or Verisign) you already have most of what you need. It should be a file labeled something.cer.

Hi, thanks for your help!

I was able to export my kdb file into a p12 format using gsk4ikm, and then
extract the private key and public key with openssl pkcs12.

Thanks again!
