WSO2 products use asymmetric encryption by default for the purposes of authentication and data encryption. In asymmetric encryption, keystores (with key pairs and certificates) are created and stored for the product. It is possible to have multiple keystores so that the keys used for different use cases are kept unique. For more information about creating and configuring keystores, see Using Asymmetric Encryption.

After you have created a new keystore and updated the client-truststore.jks file, you must update a few configuration files in order to make the keystore work.

For instructions on the default carbon keystore configurations, see Configuring Keystores in WSO2 Products in the WSO2 Product Administration Guide.

The following common configurations should be completed before you begin the configurations given in this page.

Make sure you do the configurations below to configure a keystore in WSO2 API Manager.

Configuring keystores for AMQP and MQTT transports

To configure AMQP and MQTT transports, open the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/broker.xml file. The values for the location and password parameters under keyStore and trustStore must be updated. The code below shows the default values.

<sslConnection enabled="true" port="8672">
	<keyStore>
		<location>repository/resources/security/wso2carbon.jks</location>
        <password>wso2carbon</password>
    </keyStore>
    <trustStore>
        <location>repository/resources/security/client-truststore.jks</location>
        <password>wso2carbon</password>
    </trustStore>
</sslConnection>

Configuring keystores for Jaggery Apps SSO configuration

Open the <API-M_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/publisher/site/conf/site.json file. Update the values for keyStoreName and keyStorePassword as shown below.

"ssoConfiguration" : {
        "enabled" : "true",
        "issuer" : "API_PUBLISHER",
        "identityProviderURL" : "https://localhost:9444/samlsso",
        "keyStorePassword" : "wso2carbon",
        "identityAlias" : "wso2carbon",
        "responseSigningEnabled":"true",
        "assertionSigningEnabled":"true",
        "keyStoreName" :"wso2carbon.jks",
    },

Configuring keystores for security

Open the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/identity/identity.xml file and update the values for Location and Password under the KeyStore section. The default configurations are shown below.

<EntitlementSettings>
	<ThirftBasedEntitlementConfig>
		<EnableThriftService>false</EnableThriftService>
		<ReceivePort>${Ports.ThriftEntitlementReceivePort}</ReceivePort>
		<ClientTimeout>10000</ClientTimeout>
		<KeyStore>
			<Location>${carbon.home}/repository/resources/security/wso2carbon.jks</Location>
			<Password>wso2carbon</Password>
		</KeyStore>
		<ThriftHostName>${carbon.host}</ThriftHostName>
	</ThirftBasedEntitlementConfig>
</EntitlementSettings>


Configuring keystores for endpoints

Open the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/identity/EndpointConfig.properties file and update client.keyStore and client.trustStore with the location of the keystore and truststore respectively. The default configurations are shown below.

tenantListEnabled=false
hostname.verification.enabled=true
mutual.ssl.username=admin
client.keyStore=./repository/resources/security/wso2carbon.jks
Carbon.Security.KeyStore.Password=wso2carbon
client.trustStore=./repository/resources/security/client-truststore.jks
Carbon.Security.TrustStore.Password=wso2carbon
#identity.server.serviceURL=https://localhost:9443/services/
username.header=UserName
key.manager.type=SunX509
trust.manager.type=SunX509
tls.protocol=TLSv1.2

Configuring keystores for advanced transport handling

To have more advanced transport handling functions using keystores, you must update the <APIM_HOME>/repository/conf/tomcat/catalina-server.xml file and the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/axis2/axis2.xml file.
