Convert .jks to p12: Easy Steps for PKCS#12 Conversion
If you have a Java KeyStore (.jks) file and need to convert it to PKCS#12 format (.p12), you can do so with just a few easy steps.
Step 1: Install OpenSSL
The first step is to install OpenSSL on your computer. For Windows users, you can download OpenSSL from the Win32 OpenSSL website. For Mac users, you can install OpenSSL using
brew by running the following command in terminal:
brew install openssl
Step 2: Export the .jks file
The next step is to export the private key and the certificate from the .jks file. You can do this using the
keytool command in terminal:
keytool -v -importkeystore -srckeystore your_keystore.jks -destkeystore your_keystore.p12 -deststoretype PKCS12
your_keystore.jks with the name of your .jks file and
your_keystore.p12 with the name you want for your new .p12 file.
Step 3: Convert to PKCS#12 format
The last step is to convert the exported file to PKCS#12 format. You can do this using OpenSSL by running the following command in terminal:
openssl pkcs12 -in your_keystore.p12 -out your_certificate.pem -nodes
your_keystore.p12 with the name of your .p12 file and
your_certificate.pem with the name you want for the output file.
And that's it! You have now successfully converted your .jks file to PKCS#12 format. This process can be useful when working with different types of systems and applications that require PKCS#12 format certificates.
