Follow the guidelines below to deploy Identity Server in production. In addition to this, see Production Deployment Guidelines.

The following changes should be applied on a fresh Identity Server instance. Do not start the Identity Server until the configurations are finalized.

Changing the default keystore

  1. Open <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/carbon.xml file.
  2. The private key is used for the HTTPS channel and for the token issuer to sign the issued tokens. 

The following section of the carbon.xml should be updated to match your private key information.

The private key must be available in a keystore of the "JKS" or "PKCS12" type. More information on key stores can be found here. See Setting up Keystores for more details on changing the default keystore.

      Security configurations
            KeyStore which will be used for encrypting/decrypting passwords
            and other sensitive information.
            <!-- Keystore file location-->
            <!-- Keystore type (JKS/PKCS12 etc.)-->
            <!-- Keystore password-->
            <!-- Private Key alias-->
            <!-- Private Key password-->

           The directory under which all other KeyStore files will be stored

Changing the host name

  1. Open <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/carbon.xml file.
  2. Change the host names of the Identity Provider to match the "Common Name" of the certificate of the private key.

           Host name or IP address of the machine hosting this server
           This is will become part of the End Point Reference of the
           services deployed on this server instance.
        Host name to be used for the Carbon management console
            The URL of the back end server. This is where the admin services are hosted and
            will be used by the clients in the front end server.
            This is required only for the Front-end server. This is used when seperating BE server from FE server

Changing the HTTP/HTTPS ports

  • Open <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/tomcat/catalina-server.xml file and change the HTTP and HTTPS ports in the <connector> elements.

     <Connector  protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"
    <Connector  protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"

Configuring Security

After you install WSO2 IS, it is recommended to change the default security settings according to the requirements of your production environment.
