Need Help in Adding Certificate to HTTP Header in Axis Web Service Client(for certificate based authentication).

ServerSide:

This is my Server Side handler which intercepts my message that is sent and checks for certificate in HTTP header.

/**
* Simple Axis handler which looks for a http header
* containing myCert. Invoke() method
* checks these...
public class MyCertificateHandler extends BasicHandler {
/**
*
*/

private USAuthentication authenticator = new USAuthentication();


@Override
public void invoke(MessageContext context) throws AxisFault {
// Check to see if the config file has Client Certificate Authentication disabled (by default we'll enable).
String certAuth = Config.getInstance().getProperty("myapiCertificateAuth", "true");

if (certAuth.equalsIgnoreCase("false")){
logger.info("Certificate authentication disabled.");
}
else{

if (!(context.getProperty("transport.http.servletRequest") instanceof HttpServletRequest)) return;

HttpServletRequest request;
request = (HttpServletRequest)context.getProperty("transport.http.servletRequest");

String myclientCertStr = null;
Enumeration clientCertHeader = request.getHeaders("myCert");
if (clientCertHeader.hasMoreElements()) {
clientCertStr = (String)clientCertHeader.nextElement();
}

if (myclientCertStr == null) {
throw new AxisFault("There is No Certificate in header.");
}
else {
X509Certificate clientCert = CertUtilSuper.generateCertificateFromXClientCert(clientCertStr);

if (clientCert == null) {
throw new AxisFault("Cannot generate X509cert for: " + myclientCertStr);
}
else{
String subject = clientCert.getSubjectX500Principal().getName();
String ca = clientCert.getIssuerX500Principal().getName();

if (MyCertVerify.validateCert(clientCert)){ //validate cert
}
else{
logger.error("Not A Valid certificate");
throw new AxisFault("cant be validate this certificate.");
}
}
}
}


}


}


}



Client Side.

1) With the WSDL I have, i generated proxy classes using eclipse WSDL2Java

2) With proxy class (generated stub) i am setting the endpoint calling desired method

Since I’m not setting certificate anywhere I’m getting the following exception

NO Certificate in header.

Can you please help me to find out how to add certificate to Http Header when I’m using apache axis web service client

This one worked for me.


System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStoreType", "JKS");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStore", "keystore.jks");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword", "password");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.keyStoreType", "pkcs12");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.keyStore", "client.p12");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword", "password");
DeServiceProxy d=new DeServiceProxy ();
dm.setEndpoint("https://xxx.xx.100.xxx/services/DmtService");
dm.getDeviceStatus("61656","2256");
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
