Dear, good afternoon!
I need to create a simple class in Java (with a main) generating public and private keys and the record in the database using PKSC # 11.
I've read:
JavaTM PKCS # 11 Reference Guide
Java TM Cryptography Architecture
JavaTM Cryptography Extension (JCE)
however, still do not know how to do it actually. Do you have some kind of practical guide, or specific mentoring from such implementation?
What I really need to give beginning? Only with the JDK and JCE installed is enough, or should I install the SDK?
Tanks!

You need something like the following. What are you going to do after you've got the key pair?

So I need to generate a keystore.
Well, the code you showed me I already know to generate, in fact I need to generate these keys using PKCS # 11. I need to use the OpenSC, but do not know how to do it. It seems that I have to download a configuration file, an implementation ... I'm not sure.
