How do you make keystore?

I've tried making a keystore. I failed.
1. What information goes into a keystore?
2. What is the file extension of a keystore?

Relevance to Applets:

To use JAR files in Applets, you need to have a signed JAR I believe.

Thanks,

You only need to sign the JAR file if the Applet requires permissions that would typically be restricted by the SecutiryManager, such as write access on local system resources.
If that's the case, this tutorial should privide the information you need to create a (self-)signed Applet: http://java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/Programming/JDCBook/signed.html
