The device key store is a key store which has the ability to sync with the desktop software.

There is a program called CertSync that runs in the desktop software which allows for people to modify the contents of this keystore. It is important to note that any changes done on the desktop will be reflected here and any changes done here (on the device) will be reflected on the desktop.

For sample code on how to use a key store see: here
