Error description

  • Error Message: N/A
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    We've found a problem in iKeyman and the cmsprovider that will
    effect:
    CMS Provider 1.36 (ikeyman 8.0.373) shipped with IBM JDK
    6.0sr12, 6.26sr4 and 7.0sr3
    CMS Provider 2.4 (ikeyman 8.0.375) shipped with IBM JDK 6.0sr14,
    6.26sr6 and 7.0sr5
    The issue is that when a user changes the password on a cms
    keystore  all the "Signer Certificates" will lost. It doesn't
    affect the "Personal Certificates"and "Certificate Requests" but
    all trust anchors will be gone.
    

Local fix

  • 1. For ikeycmd
       a) Convert the existing keystore to a new filename and the
    same type as it already is:
             >ikeycmd -keydb -convert -db key.kdb -pw 111 -target
    temp.kdb -new_format cms -new_pw 222
       b) Then rename the temporary keystore back to the old name.
    2. For the ikeyman gui the same can be achieved using the "Save
    As" operation.
