SSLv3 bad certificate alert message from the peer

Running SAP PI 7.11 attempting to send data to a partner via HTTPS using client certificates.

The SM59 configuration has been performed 'Status of Protocol' is set to active and 'SLL Client Certificate' is set to DFAULT SLL Client (Standard). I have loaded the partners certificates and included all the certificates in the complete path into STRUST. I have also restarted ICM to ensure its updated.

When testing the RFC destination I get the error message 'received a fatal SSLv3 bad certificate alert message from the peer'. The partner has said that they aren't receiving the client certificate.

I have checked SAP NOTE 1094342 and followed the instructions contained within the document - including getting an updated copy of all the certificates in the chain.

Can anyone advise what I may have missed?

    Hi Robert,

    Use the old iaik_ssl.jar version that has the range of IAIK version 3.0-3.1.

    The newer versions (3.0-3.2) are not supported and so you get this error

    of bad certificate.

    Regards,
