    Deployment Rule Sets

    be6f732b-2ba7-4b9f-b2fd-f3f94c2fdde9

      I wanted to know if anyone had instructions or knew how to create self-signed certificates for the deployment rule sets, or if it can be done at all?  I've followed instructions here:

       

      http://www.sslshopper.com/article-how-to-create-a-self-signed-certificate-using-java-keytool.html

       

      to create a self signed certificate and then used the keytool to extract the certificate. I put the certificate in my trusted root ca, and then followed the instructions here to create and sign the jar file:

      I put the ruleset in C:\Windows\Sun\Java\Deployment\DeploymentRuleSet.jar and the link to view it appears in the java control panel under Security. However, when I click on the link to view the ruleset, I see "Rule Set not found", and when I go to a website with Java I get the error "Application blocked by Deployment Rule Set" and the last line of the error says "Invalid Deployment Rule Set file"

       

      So, does anyone know where I'm going wrong?  I've already spent a few hours on this and can't figure it out.
