To configure SSL on Windows Vista™, you need an SSL certificate with RSA keys for authentication. You can use the Java keytool to create the certificate.
Windows Vista will not work with DSA keys.
You can run keytool by using a single command that includes all the information that is required to create the certificate and keystore.
In a command prompt, navigate to [JAVA HOME]/bin and type the following command to create the certificate and keystore:
keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -dname "CN=Host Name, OU=Group Name, O=Company Name,L=CityName, S=State, C=Country Code" -alias "LC Cert" -keypass key_password -keystore keystorename.keystore
Replace [JAVA_HOME] with the directory where the JDK is installed, and replace the text in italic with values that correspond with your environment.
