SSL Certificates Troubleshooting

Symptoms

  • I have added a certificate to a truststore but I am still getting sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException

Diagnostic/Treatment

Diagnosis/Treatment

Validate the truststore outside the Jenkins

To test the connection with a plain “java command” run jrunscript -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=<JENKINS_TRUSTSTORE_FILE> -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=<JENKINS_TRUSTSTORE_PASS> -e "println(new java.net.URL(\"<HOSTNAME>\").openConnection().getResponseCode())"

Note:

  1. Do not forget to include all quotes (").
  2. If everything is fine the expected response is 200

In case you get a different result that expect response (200).

A - Firstly, verify your certificate is included in the <JENKINS_TRUSTSTORE_FILE> by:

keytool -list -v -keystore cacerts -alias <YOUR_ALIAS_HERE>

B -In case the javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: java.security.cert.CertificateException: No name matching <SERVER_HOSTNAME> found. Check that the “CN” (Common Name) attribute of the “Owner” entry matches with the <SERVER_HOSTNAME> used by CJE or CJOC (also check the “SubjectAlternativeName” section for Multi hostname certificates)

keytool -printcert -file path/to/<YOUR_CA_FILE>.pem

Example:

> jrunscript -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=./cacerts-with-jenkins.example.com.jks -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=changeit  -e "println(new java.net.URL(\"https://jenkins.example.com\").openConnection().getResponseCode())"

Then checking the hostname, we realized that differs from example.com, it is CN=*.notExample.com

> keytool -printcert -file /path/mycerts/example.ca.pem
