Hi All,

Below are the entries %JAVA_HOME%\jre\lib\security\java.security file and I am using java
version 1.4.2_04

security.provider.1=org.bouncycastle.jce.provider.BouncyCastleProvider
security.provider.2=sun.security.provider.Sun
security.provider.3=com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider
security.provider.4=com.sun.rsajca.Provider
security.provider.5=com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE
security.provider.6=sun.security.jgss.SunProvider

When I run the commands "keytool -list" or "keytool -list -storetype JKS" on my dos prompt I am getting below error :
keytool error: java.io.IOException: Invalid keystore format

And when I the command "keytool -list -storetype JCEKS" I am getting below output :
Keystore type: JCEKS
Keystore provider: SunJCE
Your keystore contains 0 entries


There is some java file given by some third party (actually it is dsig.SampleSign2 that comes bundled with IBM XML Security Suite) that uses the below line in its code :
KeyStore keystore = KeyStore.getInstance("JKS");


And so in accordance with the above JKS keystore type used I want to update the default .keystore with my newly generated certificate and so when I apply the command

keytool -genkey -dname "CN=Doug Tidwell, OU=developerWorks, O=IBM, L=Research Triangle Park, S=North Carolina, C=US" -keypass changeit -storepass changeit -alias xss4j1

I am getting below error message :

keytool error: java.io.IOException: Invalid keystore format



Can anyone please help me. What am I doing wrong here ...



Thanks & Regards,
Kumar.
