I can not simply make sense of this KeySTore Class.

I have private and public key and I simply want to use them in KeyStore to use later.

KeyPairGenerator keyGen = KeyPairGenerator.getInstance("DSA");
SecureRandom random = SecureRandom.getInstance("SHA1PRNG", "SUN"); java.security.NoSuchProviderException
keyGen.initialize(512 , random);
KeyPair keypair = keyGen.genKeyPair();
PrivateKey priKey = keypair.getPrivate();
PublicKey pubKey = keypair.getPublic();


File f = new File("c:\keystore");
// Create an empty keystore object
KeyStore keystore = KeyStore.getInstance(KeyStore.getDefaultType());

???
// code to store private and public key in keystore

// Save the new keystore contents
FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(keystoreFile);
keystore.store(out, password.toCharArray());
out.close();


Can some one please help me with missing code.

Installing Providers.

You can also use the keytool utility to store certificates.

Thanks Jan but I want to do programmatically.

There is a function in KeySTore class

setKeyEntry(String alias, Key key, char[] password, Certificate[] chain)
Assigns the given key to the given alias, protecting it with the given password.

So I am wondering hwo could I get the corresponding Certficate array for my privatekey ??
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
