Using SSL Certificates

Veracode Integrations Security and Troubleshooting

SSL certificates allow secure connections from a web server to a browser, domain name, server name, or hostname. Many Veracode integrations use Java, which maintains its own TrustStore. The Java TrustStore may not have the SSL root certificate.

If a Veracode integration is running on a machine that is behind an SSL inspection device, you must import the custom root certificate that the device issues to connect to Veracode. You can obtain a copy of the certificate from your IT staff or use your browser to obtain the certificate manually.

Complete these tasks to import a custom root certificate:

  1. Obtain the certificate using your browser:
  2. Identify the relevant TrustStore
  3. Import the certificate into the Java certificate trust
