You can import an SSL certificate into the Java certificate TrustStore to enable SSL

Before You Begin

You have obtained an SSL certificate from your browser:


  1. Open a command-line window as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to the %JAVA_HOME% directory that your Veracode plugin is using.
  3. Run this command to import the certificate:

    keytool -importcert -file C:\temp\example.cer -keystore lib\security\cacerts -alias sslinspection 
    Enter keystore password:                 
  4. Enter the keystore password. The default is changeit.

    A confirmation message displays informing you the certificate is now in the keystore.

  5. Enter y to trust the certificate.

    After installing your certificate, you may need to restart the IDE or CI/CD where the plugin is running for the changes to take effect.

  6. Optionally, you can list the contents of the cacerts file to verify a successful import by entering this command from the %JAVA_HOME% directory. This command outputs a text file with the full contents:

    keytool.exe -list -v -keystore lib\security\cacerts > C:\temp\cacerts.txt
