I am going introduce you to my new tool that I developed. This is called VMware Certificate Toolkit.
As I am used to implement CA signed certificates on vSphere and vCloud environment at work, it takes always some time to prepare all the files with OpenSSL or Java Keytool even with scripts.
I decided to create a Java program that handle the creation of files needed when implementing CA signed certificates on VMware infrastructure. VCT is not based on OpenSSL, it uses Java cryptographic API and is able to create compatible certificates, RSA keys and keystores to implement on your VMware Infrastructure.
The application is still in beta, and I need your help to test this app on VMware products, it has already been tested on vSphere 5.1/5.5, vCloud Director 5.1/5.5 and VCAC 6 and VCOPS.
Please don’t use this tool in production environment.
VCT is available on source forge at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vmwarecertificatetoolkit/
VMware Certificate Toolkit is able to create:
- PKCS10 CSR / RSA key generator used to prepare certificates compatible with:
- vSphere 5.x
- vCAC 6
- VCOPS 5.x
- OpenSSL configuration files
- Base 64 Certificate chains
- PKCS12 PFX keystores for vSphere services
- JCEKS keystores for vCloud Director
- SSL Automation Tool environment files
I will keep testing this app on different version of VMware products and I am also waiting for your feedbacks to make this tool better .
