keystore backup in linux

What is the proper way to back keystore.jks file...
My assumption is I just backup my store and if I have to rebuild my system, I would just need to re-import the keystore. Was not sure if there were additional files I would need to gab as-well.

You may just back up your keystore on an external device after encryption so that even if some one finds access to your keystore it wont be of any good to him
To encrypt the keystore file use the command
gpg -c keystore-filename

the above command will ask you for a password. Please remember the password as you will need that to decrypt your keystore.
To decrypt just type
gpg keystore-filename.gpg

Cheers...
