Problem summary

  • 1. Add Trust anchors for IBM cloud
    We need to be able to populate keystore with the trust anchors
    needed to deploy and operate within the IBM Cloud.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 1. Add Trust anchors for IBM cloud
    Added a new value "-ibmcloudtrust" to the constructor
    CMSProvider(String) to populate the keystore with IBM cloud
    trust certificates.
    Sample code as follows:-
    String strargs= "-ibmcloudtrust";
    CMSProvider cms = new CMSProvider(strargs);
    //create a new keystore
    KeyStore ks = KeyStore.getInstance("CMSKS");
    ks.load(null, PASSWORD);
    FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(keystorefile);
    ks.store(fout, null);
    .
