Certificate Signing Request for Oracle Http Server (OHS)

To begin, generate an Oracle Wallet and a Certificate Signing Request. Then, access the desired domain using Fusion Middleware Control and ensure that the component you wish to set up (in this case, the ohs5 Oracle HTTP server) is running. Once confirmed, proceed with the next steps.

To configure the wallets page of a webtier component, start by expanding the "Web Tier" folder within your "Farm_bifoundation_domain." From there, locate the ohs5 webtier component and click on it. Once it appears on the right pane, select "Oracle HTTP Server," then choose "Security" from the options available and finally click on "Wallets."

  1. Open the Oracle WebTier Administrator Console by navigating to the URL: http://<ohs_hostname>:<ohs_port>/webtier-admin
  2. Login to the console using your administrator credentials.
  3. From the left menu, click on "Oracle HTTP Server" and then select "Security" from the options available.
  4. Under the "Security" menu, select "Wallets" and then click on the "Create Wallet" button.
  5. On the "Create Wallet" page, enter a name for the wallet and select "Create as CSR" from the "Create Wallet As" dropdown menu.
  6. Next, enter the details for the CSR, including the Common Name (CN), Organization (O), Organization Unit (OU), and Country (C). These details will be included in the CSR and will be used to identify your organization.
  7. Click "Create" to generate the CSR.
  8. Once the CSR has been generated, you can download it by clicking on the "Download" button. You can also view the contents of the CSR by clicking on the "View" button.
  9. The CSR can then be submitted to a certificate authority (CA) to be signed and issued as a certificate.
  10. Once you receive the certificate from the CA, you can import it into the wallet by clicking on the "Import" button on the "Wallets" page.

It is important to note that the CSR will only be valid for a certain time period, after which it will need to be re-generated. Also, you should securely store the private key associated with the CSR as it is required for the certificate installation process.
