Dear Sir/Madame,

I have a question regarding importing an existing SSL wildcard certificate into my tomcat keystore.

I have generated a wildcard certificate with IIS7.5 and exported it (with private key) to a .pfx file. Can I use this with my tomcat installation and if so how can I import it into my keystore.

If this cannot be accomplished I have a second question: How can I export an existing certificate from the tomcat keystore to a .pfx or .crt file WITH private key without deleting it from the keystore.

I tried “keytool –export –keystore keys.jks –alias tomcat – file c:\cert.crt” but the It doesn’t export my private key.

Regards,
Kasper

You have to use the keytool program of your java runtime to inject the certificate into your local keystore. Here's a pretty good general tutorial:

And here's one exactly dealing with your case:
