I've been working with the Java
keytool command a lot lately, as I needed to learn all about it to license my "Hide your desktop icons" app with the TrueLicense software license manager. I think I've learned a lot about the Java keytool command, keystore files, and certificates, and I'm trying to simplify and share that information here.
Related Java keytool tutorials
To that end, here is a collection of "Java keytool, keystore, and certificate" tutorials I've created. The last link in this list is a very long Java keytool tutorial that was written specifically for TrueLicense users, but all the others should apply to any general keytool/keystore need you have:
- Java keytool command, keystore files, and certificates (TrueLicense, tutorial)
- keytool list command
- keytool import command
- keytool export command
- keytool genkey example
- keytool certificate examples
I hope these Java keytool and keystore tutorials are helpful. This whole process has been a learning experience, that's for sure. At the very least I now know what keytool, keystore, genkey, export, import, private key, public key, and certificate mean.
