UCS Configuration

  1. Retrieve the required certificates.
    Ask the Oracle administrator to provide the Oracle certificate chain. This may include the root CA if your certificates are self-signed.
  2. Register the Oracle certificate(s) in the truststore file.
    Register on the UCS 8.5 server hosts (primary and backup) the chain of certificates that will be used to validate the Oracle server certificate with the Java truststore file. The following example uses keytool and a self-signed CA:
    keytool -import -trustcacerts -keystore /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit -noprompt -alias "Genesys Internal CA" -file ~/ca-intermediate.crt
  3. Configure UCS to use your truststore file.
    Truststore can be configured by specifying Java environment variables in contactServer.sh or ContactServerDriver.ini.
    -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/security/cacerts
    -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStoreType=jks
    -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=changeit
    You may also need to specify common cipher suites to use. Please refer to Java SSL vendor documentation for more details.
  4. Start UCS 8.5 server.
