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 http://129.6.24.109:9080/ or in the secure case
https://129.6.24.109:9443/) 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 https://129.6.24.109:9443/ from within Firefox, trusting the
certificate, exporting the certificate and importing it into my Java
truststore.

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
server.

I have the same problem when trying to connect to
https://129.6.24.109:9443/ with my Firefox. There I get the error message:
YOUR SSL-Certificate could not be verified (Error-Code:
ssl_error_bad_cert_alert).

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!

Greetings
Stefan

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! ;)
