I have a digital certificate (X.509) with the .pfx extension and the code that was written to add as follows:

private void setupForSSL() {

Properties properties = System.getProperties();
String handlers = System.getProperty("java.protocol.handler.pkgs");

if (handlers == null) {
// nothing specified yet (expected case)
else {
// something already there, put ourselves out front


// put the updated properties back in System

I used Keytool to add the certificate and when i ran this C:\Java\TestingClient>keytool -import -file hooper509.pfx -keystore hooper
Enter keystore password: xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I got this error
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Input not an X.509 certificate

Any help would be appreciated.
