FileKeystoreInstance.getKeyManager() fails when there is more than one privatekey in the store
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-2280
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2280
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 1.1, 1.1.1
            Reporter: Vamsavardhana Reddy
             Fix For: 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.x, 1.2


FileKeystoreInstance.getKeyManager() fails when there is more than one privatekey in the store.

Scenario 1:  The method will throw UnrecoverableKeyException if the all the private key entries
in the keystore do not have the same password (as the entry of our interest).

Scenario 2: Even if all the private key entries have the same password and the method returns
a KeyManager, there is no control on which enrty will be used.

To overcome this, a temporary keystore (I call it a SubKeystore) can be generated and initialized
with the entry corresponding to the alias and used to init the KeyManagerFactory.
