Local fix

  • Use other tools instead. such as gskcapicmd & keytool.
    

Problem summary

  • The reason is JAVA8 has dropped 2 classes:CertificateSubjectName
    & CertificateIssuerName which iKeyman 8 uses.
    

Problem conclusion

  • iKeyman 8 doesn't call CertificateSubjectName &
    CertificateIssuerName anymore.
