Keystore change passwords

I currently have a keystore, with a particular password that only I should know. I now need to give access to that keystore to someone else, so I would like to either:

1) Change the password, so I can share it with others and let them sign

2) Create a different password and allow them to sign with it.

Is this possible? and - if yes - how?

Answer

Keystore only has one password. You can change it using keytool:

keytool -storepasswd -keystore my.keystore

To change the key's password:

keytool -keypasswd  -alias <key_name> -keystore my.keystore
