Jarsigner: "Este jar contiene entradas cuya cadena de certificados no está validada".

I get the following error on a self-signed jar:

jar verified.

Warning:
This jar contains entries whose certificate chain is not validated.

Re-run with the -verbose and -certs options for more details.

I signed the jar like this:

"C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin\jarsigner" -keystore myKeyStore myJar.jar myAlias

My jar has 2 entry points: One for java web start, and one for an applet.

  • If I run the jar in a java web start way, it has no incidence.
  • But if I run the jar as an applet. I get a strong security warning at some point when I try to access a bitmap resource embeded in the jar.

Using the -verbose and -certs options shows a lot of lines. And I don't understand anything of this. This is the output: salida.txt (part of the 6307 lines reproduced below).

How to sign the jar file ?

It makes sense. I included a link to the output. -

"If I run the jar in a java web start way, it has no incidence." What level of security permissions does the JWS launch request? -

If the applet runs sand-boxed as well, why sign the code at all? -

because the applet doesn't work if i don't sign it. it should but it doesn't, for a reason I ignore. -

Just one line answers you question I guess. And if you look closer you'll see it. Here it is


[certificate is valid from 17/08/11 17:32 to 24/07/11 17:32]

As I may hope, you know that today is not July 24 so you just have to re-sign your app

If the certificate is no longer valid, then he will have to recreate the certificate to extend the valid time period. - John Haager

No, it's 24/07/2111, and it's valid. - Joel

I am just wondering... Is it valid from 17/08/2111 17:32 to 24/07/2111 17:32 ? - user592704

Could you provide the key and the cert validation dates? - user592704

Thanks Andrew Thompson. I have unsigned my jar file, and found the bug. It's better unsigned you're right about this, because signing makes no point since I don't need to get out of the sandbox.

For the record, the bug was the use of the jnlp.jar library. In order to make it work, I launched the applet using jnlp/applet code instead of a standard tag.

so how did you fix it? a little bit more detail please - Oso lindo

I launched the applet using jnlp/applet code instead of a standard html applet tag. docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/deploymentInDepth/… - Joel

Tengo exactamente el mismo problema.

There is a change in the validation in the new Java 7 and Java 6 versions. Bug id is : 6861062 java classes_security Disable MD2 in certificate chain validation.

When signing the Jara file , I had some warning message and when executing the command: jarsigner MyTools.jar -verify -verbose -certs

I had the message: X.509, OU=Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority, O="VeriSign, Inc.", C=US [certificate is valid from 29.01.96 01:00 to 02.08.28 01:59] [CertPath not validated: Algorithm constraints check failed: MD2withRSA]

My solution is : - use another version of the JDK to sign and JRE Plugin. - Update your certificate security in order not to use this algorithm.

Espero que te ayude.

saludos
