The KeyStoreManager object.

register

public void register(KeyStore keyStore)
Registers a key store with the key store manager.

If you are registering a PersistableRIMKeyStore then use the other register method.

This is useful for when the KeyStore password is changed on the device. The KeyStoreManager will inform each of the registered keystores what the old password was and what the new password is. Registration is currently mandatory for all keystores. If you develop your own keystore please ensure that you register with the KeyStoreManager.

Parameters:
keyStore - The key store to be registered.

register

public void register(String className,
                     long id,
                     CodeSigningKey key,
                     KeyStore keyStore)
              throws KeyStoreRegisterException
Registers a key store.

This method is used to register key stores that need to be persistable. That is, keystores that extend or mimic the PersistableRIMKeyStore. This method will test to make sure that your KeyStore is persistable.

Parameters:
className - The class name of the PersistableRIMKeyStoreFactory.
id - A long representing which key store this is. It has to be unique.
key - a CodeSigningKey which can be used to prevent unauthorized access to your keystore.
keyStore - The key store to register.
Throws:
KeyStoreRegisterException - Thrown if the class could not be correctly instantiated.

getKeyStore

public KeyStore getKeyStore(KeyStoreData data)
This method will search through all of the KeyStores currently registered with the KeyStoreManager to see if the KeyStoreData object is a member of that KeyStore. If so, then it will return that KeyStore. Otherwise it will return null.
