I'm working on the Google Identity Toolkit, and have come across what appears to be a riddle.

  1. "Put the *.p12 file you just downloaded in a directory of your choosing which is private (you can't let anyone get access to this), but accessible to your web server code."


Where should I be placing this file?

1 Answer 1


Put it in a folder where owner is the server and chmod it to 700, so only the owner can do anything to this folder.

    Amazing! I was thinking it was that simple, but then I feared how simple it may be to hack! Thanks!
