Providing the Certificates for the Java ClientLocate this document in the navigation structure


The Java client requires the following so that it can communicate with the Web server using a secure connection:

  • A client certificate
  • The root certificate of the CA that issues the client certificate

You manage both certificates for the Java client using the SAP NetWeaver Administrator.

Configuring Authentication on the TREX Web Server

When you provide the certificates for the TREX Web server, you enter the owner and issuer of the client certificate into the configuration file TREXcert.ini (Windows/IIS) or httpd.conf (UNIX/Apache Web Server) so that the Java client can authenticate itself with the Web server. You do this after providing the certificates for the TREX Java client.
