Hi ya all,

I am trying to check if a particular certificate is trusted in a keystore.
I have created a keystore called trust.truststore and in there i have the root and issuing CA certificates as trusted entries. I have loaded this keystore as a

I then have an X509Certificate object which has the public key of a certificate issued by the issuing CA. This X509Certificate is the certificate that i want to check is trusted using the trusted entries in the KeyStore object.

Does anyone know how to check this or could start me off in the right direction ???

Thankyou everyone.

Here's some code that works for the "builtin" Java keystore. I'm sure it can be tweaked to match your keystore.
