what app id are you trying to build as i can look at the trace but this error is usually directly from the unlock command.
My app Id is 2236382.
Thank you very much
My password too is accepted within the signing keys but errors in the build.
Hello pgb Team,
Same here, please help - can't build the iOS version at all without this fix. My app id is: 1690463.
I found this and it helped - had to regenerate my certificates after removing the expired Apple certs per the instructions:
After uploading the new .p12 and provisioning files, generation works again.
please be aware that your keys are unlocked only during a build and your password isnt confirmed to be correct when you enter it on the website / api
if you get this error you can lock and re-unlock it on the settings page.
I too am getting this error.

I ran into what appears to be the same Problem - so I stumbled over this post :-)
Then I guessed that I used some special characters in the password - tried usind a password without special characters - and now it does work :-)
Did anyone get resolution to this? I am having the same issue and need to get this working urgently.
App ID is
[personal information removed per policy - https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-3731]
[This is an open forum, not Adobe support, please do not post personal information]
I know the password I am using matches what it was when I exported. I also made sure I had the un-expired Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certification Authority cert.
Any additional help that can be provided? Again, this is very urgent right now.

And have you made sure you do not use any special characters for your password?
for me it appeared to be the problem.
I just tried re-exporting my private key and using a password without "special" characters (exclamation points) and I am still getting the same error.
Well another thing, which might not be described too well is that the package name must fit the the App ID.
So if you provisioning File is issued for the app having the Apple App ID: PREFIX.com.myapp.app
There must be <widget id="com.myapp.app" ... in your config.xml
That is good as well.
Is there somebody on Adobe support side that could maybe check some logs and see if there is anything else going on? This is very urgent and I've tried everything I can think of going through the cert/key process multiple times and I just keep getting the same password incorrect error.
@Jeff had a look at your log, not much more info there from what you have -- it does look possible that it could be a problem with the key itself rather than just the password though. A few questions:
- How did you create/export the key? Did you export from Keychain on a Mac?
- Are you able to successfully build using a Development Profile?
- Have you successfully built with this distribution cert previously?
ryanskihead thanks for the response. So not sure if you looking into something triggered something else but just now, after several hours and repeated attempts, I actually got a different error message regarding plugins. I guess I hadn't updated my config file properly due to the plugin deprecation. I fixed that and now the app has built. I'm not sure why just now it decided to give me a more proper error message as the only message I got before had to do with the cert password.
Well thats very strange. I'll keep an eye on this, ping if the issue crops up once more. Glad its working now.
Is there any fix for this? I have been entering the correct password multiple times and it just shows this error
Hello, I am having the same 'iOS - the password for the associated certificate is incorrect' issue as well! *Note: I am using Windows 10!
When I am generating my P12 File, I am using the following command:
openssl pkcs12 -in ios_development.pem -out iphone_dev.p12 -password pass:mypassword
The P12 File is generated, but I do receive some errors that I don't understand.
8808:error:0D0680A8:asn1 encoding routines:asn1_check_tlen:wrong tag:crypto\asn1\tasn_dec.c:1112:
8808:error:0D07803A:asn1 encoding routines:asn1_item_embed_d2i:nested asn1 error:crypto\asn1\tasn_dec.c:274:Type=PKCS12
In the PhoneGap Docs it explains that I should use the following command in Windows to convert to key and pem to P12:
openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey mykey.key -in developer_identity.pem -out iphone_dev.p12
The problem with the above step, is that I don't have a key! I am only able to generate a .pem on Windows. So the above command is not applicable. I was able to modify the command so I can generate the P12 with only the .pem, but i'm not so sure I am even doing that correctly.
So can anyone please advise how I can properly generate a P12 file on Windows?
Looks like that doc is missing a step, I will try to get that updated. You need to also create a private key (mykey.key in the example). You can do this using openssl. This blog post has a nice outline.
thank you! much appreciated... I knew something was off! I'll give the above link a try. Thanks again.
Has anyone been able to shed some light on this issue? It appears that people have gotten this to work, but they aren't clear on what action actually corrected the error.
I am working on a client's PC running Windows 8.1. My workflow is as follows:
> openssl genrsa -des3 -out myKey.key 2048
Enter a password when prompted
> openssl req -new -key myKey.key -out CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningRequest -subj "/emailAddressemail@example.com, CN=MyCert, C=US"
Enter same password
I upload request to Apple Developer and download the ios_development.cer in return. Then:
> openssl x509 -in ios_development.cer -inform DER -out ios_development.PEM -outform PEM
> openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey myKey.key -in ios_development.PEM -out ios_development.P12
Enter password for key file
Enter export password and verify (I set to same password as in the key file)
I am using a Mobile App output from RoboHelp which uploads the app to the Phone Gap Build Server. There are no errors during any of these processes until the very end when Phone Gap tells me "the password for the associated certificate is incorrect - you can fix this here" which links me to the Phone Gap account details page. There is no information in the Log other than the build date.
Thank you so much, your answer solved my problem.
Same problem. After I renewed my Apple subscription on January 7, I created the files needed on my MacBook.
Updated all certificates there like the Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certificatin Authority.
Whatever I try I keep getting the message Error - the password for the associated certificate is incorrect - You can fix this here
I get this error with all my apps, very frustrating
我是APPID is 454366
I was never able to get this to work by generating a certificate on a Windows machine. I had to use the Keychain Access app on a Mac. Once I switched to a Mac for the certificate signing process I was able to get a working iOS app for my development device (haven't tried to submit to the App Store yet).
The blog post link below isn't related to Adobe, but it really helped me work through the processes with Apple for submitting an app. It's complete with screenshots and very thorough step by step instructions. Maybe see if there's a step in there that you missed.
martink11640123 in your case maybe make sure your intermediate certificate, AppleWWDRCA.cer is still valid. It may have expired when your developer account was up for renewal, but it must be valid. I think if you launch a project in Xcode it will take care of this step for you automatically.

Thank you for pointing me to the correct (updated) site where the signing process is desribed.
I have got it working now for my Apple devices.
Important step was the creation of the p12-file. This was not described correctly on the pages I followed last year.
I have made a correct description on this site Phonegap development – AppsMarK
Would appreciate some help with the same issue. (the password for the associated certificate is incorrect). I'm 100% sure we are typing the correct password; and we've followed the cert and build step by step instructions several times. (even followed the help on this link= Phonegap development – AppsMarK )
was this certificate created and exported from the apple developer console? i would suggest re-exporting it again to a p12 as we are unable to import the certificate, as it doesnt seem to be a valid certificate.
I am Facing Same Problem can you pls help me this....
Error - Certificate doesn't match profile: The default keychain doesn't have an identity matching
Well.. the p12 was created from the priv cert (we downloaded from apple developer) on my Mac (keychain app; like your tutorial describes); at developer.apple I dont see where I can create a p12. I'll check if we can create it at apple developer's site and let you know.
Matthew Okoh, it looks like you have an invalid key. I'd suggest recreating it.
so recreate the key on apple develop. and redo the submit phonegap?
Did you originaly export the certificate from your Apple Developer Account? Based on the info spit out by the build log doesn't seem like you used an iPhone Developer certificate:
