Obtain a suitable cryptographic key

If you have read and followed all of the preparation steps up to this point, your application is compiled and ready for signing. Inside the .apk, the application is properly versioned, and you've cleaned out extra files and private data, as described above.

Before you sign your application, you need to make sure that you have a suitable private key. For complete information about how to obtain (or generate) a private key, see Obtaining a Suitable Private Key.

Once you have obtained (or generated) a suitable private key, you will use it to:

• Register for a Maps API Key (see below), if your application uses MapView elements.

• Sign your application for release, later in the preparation process
