Subject Re: credential store support for public/private key
Date Fri, 04 Jul 2014 14:59:37 GMT
Hi Sursh,

I implemented that method and trying to test now by copying this public key
to BRII, If this works fine I think we can proceed. But what I am not sure
is I am using the right code if someone already used this I am curious how
did this work.

Regards
Lahiru
