Just curious how I go about this, is there a site to buy them, or do we code them ourselves? Netbeans IDE creates it's own Key with a .ks and sets it to the applet automatically.... I would like my own tho...

Couldn't find much in there, I looked up "keystore" is that all I need?

Look harder. Especially the article on sas.com explains what you need to do.
