I'm not able to extract my private key from pkcs12 file which was loaded in to KeyStore object .

ksp = KeyStore.getInstance("PKCS12");
            fis = new FileInputStream(policyFile);
            ksp.load(fis, null);
      System.out.println("size of the ksp::"+ksp.size());//---- return 0
 
            char[] privateKeyPassword = access_policy.toCharArray();
            
            PrivateKey key = (PrivateKey) ksp.getKey("XXXXX"
                    + access_policy.toLowerCase(), privateKeyPassword);
            Signature s = Signature.getInstance("SHA1withRSA");
            s.initSign(key);

Have you tried filling in the password in the load() method instead? PKCS#12 is a password encrypted file, so I am wondering if just supplying the password for the key alias works (my guess is not, please reply if this doesn't work, I'll look for my PKCS#12 code at work).
