Convert Java key store certificate from ".jks" to LoadRunner ".pem" format.

This article show you step by step approach how to convert ".jks" to ".pem". Two different tools will be used for the process and there are two steps... 
Keytool – It a Java key and certificate management utility. It allows users to manage their own public/private key pairs and certificates. It comes with Java/JRE/JDK and almost all computer has JRE.
OpenSSL - It comes with LoadRunner. If not can be downloaded from internet ( 

First, convert JKS to PKCS12 format:

  • Save the ".jks" file in your computer. My ".jks" file name is "demo.jks" and saved in "C:\temp".
  • Open the command prompt ("Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> Command Prompt" or "Start >> Run and type 'cmd' and hit enter")
  • Navigate to Java or JRE bin folder on the command prompt. On the command prompt type "Java\jre1.x.x_xx\bin". It could be different on your computer.
  • On the command prompt, type following and it will create another file with “.p12” extension. Make sure to replace file and folder path.
keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore "C:\Temp\demo.jks" -srcalias cpwxc_test -destkeystore "C:\Temp\demo.p12" -deststoretype PKCS12
  • It prompts you to enter password, enter the password. Remember this password, you will need it on the next step.

Next, convert PKCS12 to PEM format:

On the command prompt, go to the OpenSSL location and type following text and it will create a file with “.pem” extention.
openssl pkcs12 -in "C:\Temp\demo.p12" -out "C:\Temp\demo.pem"
It will ask you to enter password. Enter the password you entered in the previous step.
