Tomcat : java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect
Configured Tomcat’s SSL, while starting Tomcat server, it hits following exception :
14 Disember 2010 4:18:31 PM org.apache.tomcat.util.net.jsse.JSSESocketFactory getStore SEVERE: Failed to load keystore type JKS with path c:\keystore due to Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect at sun.security.provider.JavaKeyStore.engineLoad(JavaKeyStore.java:771) at sun.security.provider.JavaKeyStore$JKS.engineLoad(JavaKeyStore.java:38) at java.security.KeyStore.load(KeyStore.java:1185) //... at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.start(Bootstrap.java:289) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:414) Caused by: java.security.UnrecoverableKeyException: Password verification failed at sun.security.provider.JavaKeyStore.engineLoad(JavaKeyStore.java:769) ... 20 more
The password in Tomcat’s “<Connector>” is NOT matched with the password you assigned to your keystore.
File : $Tomcat\conf\server.xml
//... <!-- Define a SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8443 This connector uses the JSSE configuration, when using APR, the connector should be using the OpenSSL style configuration described in the APR documentation --> <Connector port="8443" //... keystorePass="password here must same with your keystore's password" /> //...
To fix this, make sure both are using same password, and passwords are case sensitive as well 🙂
