What is KeyStore Explorer?
KeyStore Explorer is a free, open source GUI replacement for the Java command-line utilities keytool, jarsigner and jadtool. KeyStore Explorer presents their functionality, and more, via an intuitive graphical user interface.
KeyStore Explorer was originally written by Wayne Grant and is now maintained by Kai Kramer. Since 2013 it is licensed under GPLv3.
Highlights of KeyStore Explorer's capabilities are listed below.
Simplified Development of Secure Java
A software developer should be able to focus on the problem at hand
without struggling with obtuse command-line tools. With KeyStore
Explorer difficult security tasks such as key pair generation and code
signing become quick and simple.
KeyStore Explorer can be used to create and navigate KeyStores via
its intuitive graphical interface. The contents of KeyStores can be
created and modified, imported and exported using just a few simple
Sign Java Code
KeyStore Explorer provides the capability to digitally sign Java applications in both JAR and J2ME "MIDlet" form.
Extensive Format Support
KeyStore Explorer supports a variety of KeyStore, key pair, private key and certificate formats. See features for a list of supported formats.
Run Almost Anywhere
KeyStore Explorer is 100% pure Java and will run on any machine that
has an Oracle JRE installed. Its capabilities are therefore available
on Windows, Mac, Unix and Linux.
