Installing SSL Thawte Certificates for tomcat from pre-generated Private Key

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have received a Bunch of SSL certificates that i need to install into tomcat servers, and normally this is easy enough. However, these certificates have had their private keys generated elsewhere and handed over with the private keys and all the SSL certificates. Keytool doesn't allow me to import Private keys, directly so im unable to follow the standard process for generating a private key and then send it off to get the certificate. I have found another question 'http://stackoverflow.com/questions/906402/importing-an-existing-x509-certificate-and-private-key-in-java-keystore-to-use-i (HowTos)
