Error description

  • When a new CA signed PKCS12 certificate (.pfx) is checked into
    the System Repository, the display of the certificate
    incorrectly shows the root certificate information instead of
    the CA digitally signed certificate information. The thumbprint
    is correct for the digitally signed public certificate, but the
    valid dates, issuer, and subject are incorrect because it
    displays the root certificate information.
    This issue occurs only on Sterling Integrator version 5.2.6.2
    for Chain Certificates, where Private Key and corresponding
    Certificates are packaged into a .pfx file, which is generated
    using IBM's iKeyMan Tool. When the same certificate is checked
    into any version of Sterling Integrator prior to 5.2.6.2; i.e.
    5.2.4.2, 5.2.5, or 5.2.6.1, the certificate information is
    displayed correctly.

    When new CA signed PKCS12 CERT (.PFX) is checked into the system
    repository, the certificate shows the root certificate
    information instead of the CA signed certificate information.

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    A code fix is provided.
    Post this code fix, when Certificates in .pfx format generated
    using IBM's iKeyMan Tool and processed through an intermediate
    software are imported into the System Repository of Sterling
    Integrator, the Certificate Summary page shows the correct
    leaf-certificate information. However, checking in of .pfx files
     generated using the iKeyMan Tool directly into the System
    Repository of Sterling Integrator is not recommended.
