HOW TO: Extract certificates from a HTTPS URL and add to ca-bundle.crt file
Solution

There are two ways to do this:


1. Get all the certificates from a browser.

2. Run OpenSSL to get the certificates.


Method 1: From the browser

  • Export ca-bundle.crt file from PowerCenter Server to the local machine and take a backup.
  • Perform the following steps to export the certificate to the local machine from HTTPS site.
      1. Open the HTTPS URL that is being accessed from Informatica (Example: https://www.google.com)
      2. Open the Certificate.

      3. Go to Certification path > select the first certificate.

      4. Click View Certificate.

      5. Go to Details tab.

      7. Select the option Base-64 encoding and Click Next.

  • To export the second certificate, perform similar steps.

  • To export the third certificate, perform the following steps:

    1. Select the last certificate.

    2. Switch to Details Tab and click Copy to File.

    4. Provide a name for the third certificate and click Save.

    6. Select Finish.

  • To add Certificates to ca-bundle.crt file, perform the following steps:

    1. Open ca-bundle.cert file in Notepad++.
    2. Open the exported certificate cert1.cer file in Notepad++.
    3. Append the contents of cert1.cer file to ca-bundle.crt file.
    4. Perform similar steps for cert2.cer and cert3.cer file and append their content to ca-bundle.crt file.

Method 2: Using OpenSSL

Run the following command to gather all the certificates from your server hosting your HTTPS URL:
openssl s_client -connect host:port -showcerts
 
A complete certificate looks as follows:
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
[data]
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
 
All such certificates from the OpenSSL output into ca-bundle.crt file.
For https://www.google.com:443, we got three certificates in the certificate chain. So, all three have to be added.
(Check More Information section for further details)

Note

Important Information

The label PEM Data: must be included for every certificate that you append. Check the existing ca-bundle.crt file for the format.

Example

PEM Data: 
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- 
MIID+DCCAuCgAwIBAgIRANAeQ
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
More Information
Complete OpenSSL command output is as follows:

Example

C:\>openssl s_client -connect google.com:443 -showcerts
