callout with certificate

Hi,

 

I have a requirement to make SOAP callout with certificate. In fact a webservice that is hosted on client server and client provided us a certificate (.cert file) as well as a password keystore file (.jks file) to implement secure callout. But i couldn't figure out how to use these files in webservice callout.

 

Please help, it's urgent.

 

Any point would appreciated.

I think you need to import that certificate into browser to identify the caller of SOAP webserivce.

Hi Kumar,

 

Thanks for reply.

 

But i dont think the provided certificate is for browser beacuse callout might make from any other location( different browse on different system). I guess there should be somthing in apex code (set the some property with some info at the time of callout) or in salesforce configuration (like import certificate...). But i am not sure.

True but there are also sites upon browsing which hand you over a certificate which have to import into the browser. Not sure of details how it works internally... Did you check the full SOAP request structure at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190796(v=sql.100).aspx ?
