Keystores allow you to manage the keys that are stored in a database. A Keystore must contain a key pair with a certificate signed by a trusted Certification Authority (CA). A CA is an entity trusted by all parties participating in a secure communication. This entity will certify the trusted party's public keys by signing them. Since the certificate authority is trusted, it will accept the public key certificates signed by that particular CA as trusted. WSO2 Carbon uses several keystores to power the HTTPS transport and to encrypt other confidential information such as administrator passwords.
