APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: Pb 1.  Certificate validation failed with iKeyman
    with error message "Validation failed: Missing intermediate or
    root certificate".Pb 2. Review new CA certificates : Some new
    Entrust CA's are not in IKeyman
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

  • For iKeyman validation fail (Pb 1), the workaround for the user
    is to ignore this iKeyman warning as the gsk8capicmd validation
    passes.
    

Problem summary

  • Pb 1. Certificate validated through native GSK command
    (gskcapicmd) and open ssl command, but failed to validate
    through iKeyman.Pb 2. Entrust has been using new CA to issue
    certificates for customers and that these CA's are not in
    iKeyman.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Pb 1. iKeyman has a problem with the validation of the
    certificates when using the validation selector of the subject
    name. It appears that the subject name in this certificate is
    complex and the selection requires an exact match. The problem
    can be resolved in iKeyman by changing the code to use the
    entire certificate as the selector rather than a string
    representation of the subject name.Pb 2. The following new
    Entrust CA's were added "Entrust.net Certification Authority
    (2048) 29", "Entrust Root Certification Authority - EC1",
    "Entrust Root Certification Authority - EV", "Entrust Root
    Certification Authority - G2".
