      Returns:
      the alias name of the first entry with matching certificate, or null if no such entry exists in this keystore.
    • engineStore

      public abstract void engineStore(OutputStream stream, char[] password) throws IOException, NoSuchAlgorithmException, CertificateException
      Stores this keystore to the given output stream, and protects its integrity with the given password.
      Parameters:
      stream - the output stream to which this keystore is written.
      password - the password to generate the keystore integrity check
      Throws:
      IOException - if there was an I/O problem with data
      NoSuchAlgorithmException - if the appropriate data integrity algorithm could not be found
      CertificateException - if any of the certificates included in the keystore data could not be stored
    • engineStore

      Stores this keystore using the given KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter.
      Implementation Requirements:
      The default implementation throws an UnsupportedOperationException.
      Parameters:
      param - the KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter that specifies how to store the keystore, which may be null
      Throws:
      IllegalArgumentException - if the given KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter input is not recognized
      IOException - if there was an I/O problem with data
      NoSuchAlgorithmException - if the appropriate data integrity algorithm could not be found
      CertificateException - if any of the certificates included in the keystore data could not be stored
      UnsupportedOperationException - if the implementation does not support this operation
      Since:
      1.5
    • engineLoad

      public abstract void engineLoad(InputStream stream, char[] password) throws IOException, NoSuchAlgorithmException, CertificateException
      Loads the keystore from the given input stream.

      A password may be given to unlock the keystore (e.g. the keystore resides on a hardware token device), or to check the integrity of the keystore data. If a password is not given for integrity checking, then integrity checking is not performed.

      Parameters:
      stream - the input stream from which the keystore is loaded, or null
      password - the password used to check the integrity of the keystore, the password used to unlock the keystore, or null
      Throws:
      IOException - if there is an I/O or format problem with the keystore data, if a password is required but not given, or if the given password was incorrect. If the error is due to a wrong password, the cause of the IOException should be an UnrecoverableKeyException
      NoSuchAlgorithmException - if the algorithm used to check the integrity of the keystore cannot be found
      CertificateException - if any of the certificates in the keystore could not be loaded
    • engineLoad

      Loads the keystore using the given KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter.

      Note that if this KeyStore has already been loaded, it is reinitialized and loaded again from the given parameter.

      Implementation Requirements:
      The default implementation examines KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter to extract its password and pass it to engineLoad(InputStream, char[]) along with a null InputStream.

      If KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter is null then the password parameter will also be null. Otherwise the KeyStore.ProtectionParameter of KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter must be either a KeyStore.PasswordProtection or a KeyStore.CallbackHandlerProtection that supports PasswordCallback so that the password parameter can be extracted. If the KeyStore.ProtectionParameter is neither of those classes then a NoSuchAlgorithmException is thrown.

      Parameters:
      param - the KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter that specifies how to load the keystore, which may be null
      Throws:
      IllegalArgumentException - if the given KeyStore.LoadStoreParameter input is not recognized
      IOException - if there is an I/O or format problem with the keystore data. If the error is due to an incorrect ProtectionParameter (e.g. wrong password) the cause of the IOException should be an UnrecoverableKeyException
      NoSuchAlgorithmException - if the algorithm used to check the integrity of the keystore cannot be found
      CertificateException - if any of the certificates in the keystore could not be loaded

      Parameters:
      alias - get the KeyStore.Entry for this alias
      protParam - the ProtectionParameter used to protect the Entry, which may be null
      Returns:
      the KeyStore.Entry for the specified alias, or null if there is no such entry
      Throws:
      KeyStoreException - if the operation failed
      NoSuchAlgorithmException - if the algorithm for recovering the entry cannot be found
      UnrecoverableEntryException - if the specified protParam were insufficient or invalid
      UnrecoverableKeyException - if the entry is a PrivateKeyEntry or SecretKeyEntry and the specified protParam does not contain the information needed to recover the key (e.g. wrong password)

      1.5
    • engineSetEntry

      public void engineSetEntry(String alias, KeyStore.Entry entry, KeyStore.ProtectionParameter protParam) throws KeyStoreException
      Saves a KeyStore.Entry under the specified alias. The specified protection parameter is used to protect the Entry.

      If an entry already exists for the specified alias, it is overridden.

      Parameters:
      alias - save the KeyStore.Entry under this alias
      entry - the Entry to save
      protParam - the ProtectionParameter used to protect the Entry, which may be null

    • engineProbe

      public boolean engineProbe(InputStream stream) throws IOException
      Probes the specified input stream to determine whether it contains a keystore that is supported by this implementation, or not.
      Implementation Requirements:
      This method returns false by default. Keystore implementations should override this method to peek at the data stream directly or to use other content detection mechanisms.
      Parameters:
      stream - the keystore data to be probed
      Returns:
      true if the keystore data is supported, otherwise false
      Throws:
      IOException - if there is an I/O problem with the keystore data.
      NullPointerException - if stream is null.
