Certificates and Keystores

I assume the following:

I assume keystores contain a combination of either certificates or private keys

(and a certificate itself contains 1 or 2 keys)

Is this correct ?

Thanks

Yes the keystores can contain either certificates or private keys for data integrity or authentication.
Certificate contains a public key and identity information for authentication. They keystore can contain both, but private keys are used for encryption and certificates cannot be used where a private key is required.
