I want to modify the keystore file and change its validity. Is it something possible? I created the keystore using the following command

keytool -genkey -alias test -keystore test.keystore

the validity of this keystore is 3 months (using default) and the certificate that I added to the keystore is valid for 3 years. Is there anything I could do. because now when I launch the website and view the certificate its validity is only three months but when I check the certificate by double clicking it its validity is 3 years.

If this is not possible then can I make a new keystore and add the certificate to this new keystore.

Thanks
Imad

You can remove a certificate from a keystore by using the keytool -delete option.

ok now here is my question then. What is happening is when I view the certificate in the browser it actually shows me the details of the keystore for example the valid dates of keystore not the certificate. so in browser when I say view certificate it shows me the keystore not the certificate.

Why do you think it is?
Thanks for your reply.
