Change keystore password from no password to a non blank password
I have a jks keystore with no password. When I run the command
keytool -list -keystore mykeystore.jks
And it prompts me for the keystore password, I simply hit 'enter'.
Please note that the keystore password IS NOT the default java password of 'changeit'. It is blank
When I try to run
keytool -storepasswd -keystore mykeystore.jks
to change the password to a non blank string. It firsts prompts me for the current password. Simply hitting enter since it is blank says
keytool -storepasswd -keystore mykeystore.jks Enter keystore password: Keystore password is too short - must be at least 6 characters
Just to confirm with everyone that the password is not 'changeit'
keytool -storepasswd -keystore mykeystore.jks Enter keystore password: changeit keytool error: java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect
Any idea how I can change the keystore password if the existing password is blank?
Add -storepass to keytool arguments.
keytool -storepasswd -storepass '' -keystore mykeystore.jks
But also notice that -list command does not always require a password. I could execute follow command in both cases: without password or with valid password
