    the doc is no helpful since it's very generic. I am working with WebLogic and not seeing where the .key file would be. It's a Windows 10 Server w/ WebLogic

    You can use Open SSL 

    OpenSSL Convert PFX

    Convert PFX to PEM

    openssl pkcs12 -in certificate.pfx -out certificate.cer -nodes

    I see a Weblogic KB on this . 

    E-WL: How to Extract the Private Key from a WebLogic Keystore into other Formats such as PKCS#12 or PEM? (Doc ID 638668.1)

     

    Thanks

    Yeah, I downloaded OpenSSL onto my desktop and then used command prompt to generate .pem private key. Will try and see if that works with CEM recording.

     

    Thanks all.

    Hallett_German - for the private key (.pem) file to import successfully into CEM:

     

    A. does CEM crosscheck that key with that particular app traffic to see if it can decrypte?

     

    B. does CEM check to ensure the passphrase is correct for the .pem file?

     

    Is it A?

    Is it B?

    Is it A & B?

    Is is A or B?

     

    Basically, what does CEM need to successfully import a private key (.pem) file?

    I don't believe it checks upon submission, but JMertin may be able to answer this.

    I do know it checks the passphrase and you will get an error if it is incorrect. My guess is it doesn't do a.

     

    Thanks

    My guess is the same. As long as the private key file (.pem) aligns with the passphrase.......CEM goes ahead and imports it.

     

    Now how to troubleshoot if the that .pem is NOT decrypting the traffic?

    So, found out that the app performs a Diffie Hellman key exchange on the load-balancer. Since CEM doesn't support Diffie Hellman, we turned it off and problem solved.

     

    I am now able to see the transaction during recording in CEM.

     

    Cheers
