IBM Global Security Kit (GSKit) - Create a new Key Database

This assumes you have reviewed Getting Started with IBM Global Security Kit (GSKit).

Before creating a key database file, you may want to list the currently supported key database types.

${install_root}/gsk8/bin/gsk8capicmd_64 -keydb -list


Which should return something like this.

Currently supported key database types:


In this example, a CMS (Certificate Management System) key database named "example.kdb" is created. The -stash option is not necessary, but is highly encouraged. The -stash option will store the password in the stash file (example.sth) so that you can simply use the -stashed option in subsequent commands which will get the password from the stash file, which is very handy when it comes to automation.

-db example.kdb
-type cms
-stash -pw your_password


In this example, a PKCS12 key database file named "example.p12" is created.

-db example.p12
-type pkcs12
-stash -pw your_password
