Does anybody know how to export the SSL Certificate from a crowd server? I need to connect to crowd from a console app.


Best regards

Hi @Alistair Robson

This is not specific to Crowd (you can use the trick for any server with SSL/TLS enabled) but I suggest you use openssl in a shell or command prompt:

openssl s_client -connect server:port

For instance

openssl s_client -connect

Hi @Alistair Robson,

Could you share some more details regarding your setup? Did you follow this documentation to setup SSL with Crowd

If so, probably you will be able to export the certificate from the java trust store. You will find the proper command in the documentation I've mentioned.


Hope that helps,

Hi Martin

Thanks for the reply.

Our setup is working correctly and I think we did follow the instructions to work with SSL.

Now however I want to add another application that connects via a console app (which will contain the login details of a user account setup for that App.)

So to do that I am guessing I need to export the certificate from the trust store and attach the certificate to the web request from the console app.

As far as I can tell the instructions you mention don't mention how to export, only how to import.

I am a bit new to certificates so you might have to spell out the command to run.

Thanks again
