Re: Using "keytool" to create security certificates for OpenLDAP
As a follow-up, I had a question about JLDAP - not sure if that is
considered off-topic on this newsgroup ...
I'm using JLDAP to connect to OpenLDAP, but since the Sun's SSL
security provider doesn't recognize PEM format files (only JKS files),
I was wondering if JLDAP has a security Provider implementation that
would know how to parse PEM files/certificates sent by OpenLDAP to the
client for authentication.
