Is it possible to backup (local or Cloud) the keys from the keychain/keystore?

I know the KeyChain is a system daemon which provides secure key storage. The keyStore will provide app-specific key storage, but where are the keys located and is it possible to backup the credentials of (all) apps?

Thanks in advance


The keys are located in the Android System and stay there indefinitely.

You need to get a new phone, recreate all your keys, revoke all the old ones and reinstall. If you don't know what reinstall means (including but not limited to what to reinstall) get a new phone, recreate all your keys, revoke the old ones and reinstall again.

Google, Carriers and Phone Manufacturers rely on your full cooperation on this matter.
