How To - 10.1.3 OWSM: Use PKCS12 certificates for signing, encryption

Oracle Web Services Manager (OWSM) uses certificates to sign/encrypt and decrypt/verify the SOAP messages. The certificate stores supported for certificate lookup are JKS and PKCS12.
OWSM supports PKCS12 only with BouncyCastle as the security provider. Sun security provider is not supported at this time. If Java keytool is used to create PKCS12 certificate store, then follow the instructions in this post to create the PKCS12 store that is compatible with OWSM.
