Key and Truststores in PKCS#12 format instead of JKS

Hello there,

I was wondering if it is possible to use the newer standard format in the Java world for Key- and Truststores, i.e.: PKCS#12 instead of the old JKS. It’d make things easier, as I usually have the PKCS#12 files for other services and could save me some cumbersome conversions.

If necessary, I can open an issue on github.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi @bgu,

Glad to see your active interest in the HiveMQ CE :slight_smile:
You should be able to simply use p12 files instead of jks.
Just configure your “keystore.p12” file the same way you would the JKS.
Let me know, if you have any difficulties.

Regards,
Florian
