Trusting a Self-Signed Certificate or a New CA
To trust a new certificate, you can do one of the following:Add
add the certificate to the application's KeyStore. For example, to add a certificate into the JFrog Artifactory KeyStore, you can add it directly to the host's JVM's trusted KeyStore.
You can also do one of the following:
- Add the certificate to the
$JFROG_HOME/<product>/var/etc/security/keys/trusteddirectory of every service that needs to trust it.
- If you are trying to connect a database over SSL, place the SSL certificates in the
/etc/ssl/certs/path to load the certificates during the startup by Metadata service.
For HA setup, you need to add the certificate to every node's trusted directory or KeyStore. The Certificates are not propagated between HA nodes automatically.
Trusting a Self-Signed Certificate in Xray Instances/Nodes
When an Xray instance/node is configured to go through an SSL proxy that uses a self-signed certificate, you may encounter the following issue when performing tasks such as an online database sync:
2021-07-20T14:47:47.500Z [33m[jfxr ][0m [1m[31m[ERROR][0m [c080f44e606d159 ] [samplers:91 ] [main ] Failed to read response from jxrayUrl. Error: Get "https://jxray.jfrog.io/api/v1/system/ping": x509: certificate signed by unknown authority
- To overcome this issue, you will need to import the Proxy certificate into each Xray instance/pod by placing it under the following path within the Xray machine/container/pods:
- Next, you will need to restart Xray.
The path shown above is the default directory used by Go applications (such as Xray) when importing SSL certificates.
Downloading a Certificate
To download/acquire the certificate(s) of the SSL secured server, use the following command:
openssl s_client -connect <secure authentication server IP and port> -showcerts < /dev/null > server.crt
openssl s_client -connect cdn.redhat.com:443 -showcerts < /dev/null > server.crt
openssl s_client -connect the.ldap.server.net:636 -showcerts < /dev/null > server.crt
openssl s_client -connect github.com:443 -showcerts < /dev/null > server.crt
