Local credentials are private key credentials hosted in Trust Store Management. A local credential identifies where a user’s DES credential is stored. Using Trust Store Management, you can import and manage your local credentials by using, for example, existing PFX files so that you can import, edit, and delete local credentials.
AEM forms supports RSA and DSA credentials up to 4096 bits in standard PKCS12 format (.pfx and .p12 files).
You can import and export any number of credentials. If you want to replace an expired credential using the same alias, delete the credential and then import the new credential with the same alias.

In the Alias box, type an identifier for the credential. This identifier is used as the display name for the credential in Acrobat Reader DC extensions and the Signature service. This alias is also used to access the credential programmatically using the AEM forms SDK.
The alias name is automatically converted to uppercase for display purposes. The alias name is not case-sensitive when you refer to it in a process.
