I'm using some code grabbed off the Interwebs that should work, but I'm getting an exception... got the .der files from my boss, so I assume they're valid, but perhaps not. Spacing and returns are odd here but normal on my machine.

C:\Users\Trevor Basden\Desktop\ImportKey>java ImportKey AKMClientPrivKey.der AKM

Hi Trevor,

Welcome to Java Ranch! I see you're not getting any responses to this question in I/O and Streams, so I'm going to move it over to Security where it might get some better traction. Good luck!

Do not threaten THIS beaver! Not even with this tiny ad:
