Hi Everybody!

I am tying to write some code in order to "speak" or "interact" with the
NIST Public Registry as well as the NIST Public Repository (both available
under or in the secure case in Secure Mode, using TLS (SSL).

For me, this rose some great problems! ;)

Basically here is what I did:

- Writing a simple Axis2 Client, that connects to the registry/repository.
- Calling from within Firefox, trusting the
certificate, exporting the certificate and importing it into my Java

This works so far - but I get an exception like
"org.apache.axis2.AxisFault: Received fatal alert: bad_certificate".

My guess is that I receive this message from the server, because I have no
(client-) certificate to identify myself - the client - against the NIST

I have the same problem when trying to connect to with my Firefox. There I get the error message:
YOUR SSL-Certificate could not be verified (Error-Code:

So my basic question is:
Where and How can I obtain a client certificate to communicate with the
NIST server using SSL?

Hope someone can help me or provide some clever advices! ;)

Thanks in Advance for both your time and your knowledge!


P.S.: I am aware that this question is not really linked up to OHF, but
you guys are always so friendly that I thought about giving it a try! ;)
