To import PKCS#12:

  1. Go to the DSM installation folder and back up the following files:
    • .keystore
    • configuration.properties
  2. Open a command prompt and run the following:
     
    The command below only works if the DSM is installed at c:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Deep Security Manager. If not, change the command accordingly.

    cd "C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Deep Security Manager\jre\bin" keytool.exe -importkeystore -destkeystore mykeystore.ks -srckeystore "<cert dir>\my_pkcs12_cert.pfx" -srcstoretype pkcs12 -deststoretype JKS

  3. Enter the source .pfx password and assign the destination keystore password when prompted. Use the same password as the source. Otherwise, the console would not start.
  4. If the certificate is signed by a root CA and intermediate CA, use the command below to import them. If not, proceed to Step 5.

    keytool -import -alias rootCA -trustcacerts -file "<cert dir>\rootCA.cer" -keystore "C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Deep Security Manager\jre\lib\security\cacerts" keytool -import -alias intermediateCA -trustcacerts -file "<cert dir>\intermediateCA.cer" -keystore "C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Deep Security Manager\jre\lib\security\cacerts"

  5. Input the default password, which is "changeit".
  6. Copy the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Deep Security Manager\jre\bin\mykeysotre.ks to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Deep Security Manager\.
  7. Open C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Deep Security Manager\configuration.properties with a Notepad. Modify the kystoreFile and keystorePass value.

    keystoreFile=C\:\\\\Program Files\\\\Trend Micro\\\\Deep Security Manager\\\\mykeystore.ks keystorePass=xxxx

  8. Restart Deep Security Manager service.
