Is the keystore file available to be read/executed by the user running tomcat?

I'm having issues with using a signed SSL certificate from with tomcat 5.5.23.

My server.xml contains the following:

     <Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
                 maxThreads="120" scheme="https" secure="true"
                 clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS"
                 keystorePass="password" />

/var/log/tomcat5/catalina.out reports the following:

LifecycleException:  service.getName(): "Catalina";  Protocol handler start failed:
Alias name tomcat does not identify a key entry

Regardless of what alias name I add to the keystore and modify in my server.xml, I always
get this error.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to why this happens?
