Here is a link to the keytool docs:
This is used to make a personally signed key. Most users will not accept it, but it will allow you to test your applet. After that you will need to purchase a certificate from Verisign or one of their competitors. This is very expensive to maintain as the certificate expires. Another approach is to use the java plug-in and have the user modify the local java.policy file.
Hope this helps.
What do you have in that there bucket? It wouldn't be a tiny ad by any chance ...
