KeyStore Explorer is an open source program used to manage keystore files. The application is designed to replace the keytool, jarsigner, and jadtool Java command-line utilities.

In addition to its keystore capabilities, the program provides helpful key pair, certificate, and private key features. KeyStore Explorer can generate ECC, RSA, and DSA key pairs with self signed X.509 certificates, sign CSRs in PKCS #10 and SPKAC formats, and import X.509 certificate files as trusted certificates.

KeyStore Explorer provides a friendly interface while supporting a variety of popular keystore, certificate, key pair, and private key format. KeyStore Explorer is a great alternative to Java command-line utilities that will help you manage your keystores.
