  Different types of keystore in Java -- Windows-MY


Windows-MY is a type of keystore on Windows which is managed by the Windows operating system. It stores the user keys and certificates which can be used to perform cryptographic operations such as signature verification, data encryption etc. Since it's a kind of native keystore, Java doesn't have a general API to access it. To help Java applications access the keys and certificates stored in Windows-MY keystore, Java provides a separate API -- SunMSCAPI. The SunMSCAPI provider is ...
