    Default Get included into the list of the default trusted root certificates of Java?

    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know the window I should contact for getting a new trusted root certificate included into Java's default trusted list? Is there a root certificate program available for Java? Like the one of Microsoft, Mozilla, and Apple. I find nothing about this online for Java.

    Regards,
    Brian

    See keytool-Key and Certificate Management Tool, the part titled "Importing a Certificate for the CA". Reading the documentation helps.

    Sorry, I'm not explaining my question clearly enough. I know of course one can use keytool to import a certificate into the store. What I actually mean is about how to make a root certificate of a specific certificateion authority included as a default when shipping, like the Mozilla or Microsoft root programs.

    Add it during installation, of course.

    Thanks for answering, but I'm not asking about the way for manually importing certificates into the store. I'm asking about is there a contact window for Java for accepting trusted CA certificates. It's about getting publically-trusted CA's certificates included in the default certificate set in Java's downloadable package.

    That is a question for Oracle, of course. Have you even attempted that, yet? I had assumed (with everything that goes along with that word) that you would already have done that if a change to the language is what you were getting at (which is, essentially, what this is, then).

    Edit: And that is if they even deliver one rather than simply use whatever the system might already provide.

    Thanks. I've filed an issue via Oracle's Java bug report system. Hope to get feedbacks soon.
