NAME

gjarsigner - Java ARchive (JAR) file signing and verification tool

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

jarsigner [OPTION]... FILE ALIAS

jarsigner -verify [OPTION]... FILE

DESCRIPTION

When the first form is used, the tool signs the designated JAR file. The second form, on the other hand, is used to verify a previously signed JAR file.

FILE is the .JAR file to process; i.e., to sign if the first syntax form is used, or to verify if the second syntax form is used instead.

ALIAS must be a known Alias of a Key Entry in the designated Key Store. The private key material associated with this Alias is then used for signing the designated .JAR file.

OPTIONS

Common options

The following options may be used when the tool is used for either signing, or verifying, a .JAR file.
-verbose Use this option to force the tool to generate more verbose messages, during its processing.
-internalsf When present, the tool will include --which otherwise it does not— the .SF file in the .DSA generated file.
-sectionsonly When present, the tool will include in the .SF generated file --which otherwise it does not— a header containing a hash of the whole manifest file. When that header is included, the tool can quickly check, during verification, if the hash (in the header) matches or not the manifest file.
-provider PROVIDER_CLASS_NAME A fully qualified class name of a Security Provider to add to the current list of Security Providers already installed in the JVM in-use. If a provider class is specified with this option, and was successfully added to the runtime --i.e. it was not already installed— then the tool will attempt to remove this Security Provider before exiting.
-help Prints a help text similar to this one.
Signing options

The following options may be specified when using the tool for signing purposes.
-keystore URL Use this option to specify the location of the key store to use. The default value is a file URL referencing the file named .keystore located in the path returned by the call to java.lang.System#getProperty(String) using user.home as argument.

If a URL was specified, but was found to be malformed --e.g. missing protocol element— the tool will attempt to use the URL value as a file-name (with absolute or relative path-name) of a key store --as if the protocol was file:.

-storetype STORE_TYPE Use this option to specify the type of the key store to use. The default value, if this option is omitted, is that of the property keystore.type in the security properties file, which is obtained by invoking the static method call getDefaultType() in java.security.KeyStore.
-storepass PASSWORD Use this option to specify the password which will be used to unlock the key store. If this option is missing, the User will be prompted to provide a password.
-keypass PASSWORD Use this option to specify the password which the tool will use to unlock the Key Entry associated with the designated Alias.

If this option is omitted, the tool will first attempt to unlock the Key Entry using the same password protecting the key store. If this fails, you will then be prompted to provide a password.

-sigfile NAME Use this option to designate a literal that will be used to construct file names for both the .SF and .DSA signature files. These files will be generated, by the tool, and placed in the META-INF directory of the signed JAR. Permissible characters for NAME must be in the range a-zA-Z0-9_-. All characters will be converted to upper-case ones.

If this option is missing, the first eight characters of the ALIAS argument will be used. When this is the case, any character in ALIAS that is outside the permissible range of characters will be replaced by an underscore.

-signedjar FILE Use this option to specify the file name of the signed JAR. If this option is omitted, then the signed JAR will be named the same as FILE; i.e., the input JAR file will be replaced with the signed copy.
Verification options

The following options may be specified when using the tool for verification purposes.
-verify Use this option to indicate that the tool is to be used for verification purposes.
-certs This option is used in conjunction with the -verbose option. When present, along with the -verbose option, the tool will print more detailed information about the certificates of the signer(s) being processed.
