keytool command (List certificates)

If you are not familiar with the Java keytool command, check out our Getting Started article.

The -list and -v (verbose) options can be used to view certificates in a keystore.

keytool -list -v -keystore "/path/to/keystore.file"


The number of entries in the keystore will be displayed.

Your keystore contains 2 entries


The prior command will display every certificate in the keystore. The -alias option can be used to display a specific certificate.

keytool -list -v -keystore "/path/to/keystore.file" -alias alias_name


If the keystore file is password protected, the -storepass option can be used to provide the password. Often, even if a keystore is secured with a password, no password may be needed to view the contents of the keystore.

keytool -list -v -keystore "/path/to/keystore.file" -storepass the_keystore_password
