The .p12 keystore file is a component of FairPlay that helps ensure the security and integrity of protected content. A .p12 keystore file stores private keys and associated certificates for FairPlay. This password-protected file is used to sign and encrypt content for use with FairPlay.

You must create a .p12 file to add your FairPlay credential to a DRM-enabled JWP property.

## Implementation

Use the following steps to produce a .p12 keystore file (called **fairplay.p12**), an ASK, and a keystore password. These resources are then uploaded to the **Content Protection** section of your DRM-enabled property in your JWP dashboard.

  1. Copy the following script and save it locally as **create-fairplay-p12.sh**.

  1. From the shell prompt, navigate to the folder in which **create-fairplay-p12.sh** has been saved.

  2. Run the following command. Refer to the notes in the script in step 1 to replace all the placeholders. The command will return the .p12 file.
