     153This section explains how to convert these credentials for use with Flukes. It presumes you have one of the credentials described above. A Flukes keystore can contain multiple private key entries. A user can select the key to be used for submitting a specific request at the time of the submission.

     155In order to make these credentials usable by Flukes, a user must create a Java JKS keystore and import at least one of the credentials into it. Java's command-line tool for manipulating keystores does not permit importing an existing private key. The easiest way to import a key/certificate is to download a tool like [http://portecle.sourceforge.net/ Portecle]. Portecle is Java-based and works across multiple platforms. Importing a .pem file containing a key and a certificate issued by either Emulab or GPO is straightforward and shown in this [attachment:"Creating Flukes keystore.mov" screen capture].
