Oracle Wallet Manager, OWM, is a graphical tool used to manage Oracle Wallet.  In 10g Release 1 Oracle introduced a command line interface to allow wallets to be managed without the need to use OWM.  Release 2 of 10g extends the functionality of orapki.  In Release 2 it is now possible to completely manage the life-cycle of a wallet using orapki.


1. Create a new wallet

$ orapki wallet create -wallet /tmp -pwd welcome1

2. Add a certificate request

$ orapki wallet add -dn "cn=test,dc=test" -keysize 1024 -wallet /tmp
Enter wallet password:

3. Export the certificate request

$ orapki wallet export -wallet /tmp -dn "CN=test,DC=test" -request /tmp/newcrt.req
Enter wallet password:

4. Sign the certificate request.

5. Import the Trusted certificate from your CA

$ orapki wallet add -wallet /tmp -trusted_cert -cert /tmp/cacert.pem
Enter wallet password:

6. Import the signed user certificate

$ orapki wallet add -wallet /tmp -user_cert -cert /tmp/newcert.pem
Enter wallet password:

7. Switch the wallet to Auto Login

$ orapki wallet create -wallet /tmp -auto_login
Enter wallet password:
