SSL and keystores/truststores issues

Question!

I dont have a question about specific code or errors, i'm programming an app (in android) which is supposed to log you in with an external authorisation system (called bankID, it's swedish). This external system demands that i have a few SSL certificates in my Trust- and my Keystore before any communication with the app and their system can be done.

My very limited knowledge about security systems makes this an almost impossible task for me to tackle on my own, so i'm wondering if anybody can help me understand what Trust- and Keystores are and how i add specific SSL files to them.

Here is a link to the guide which bankID has on their website on how to communicate between your app and their system if you're interested in reading about it, but i honestly understand very little from this pdf so i thought that maybe someone else with more competence than me maybe could help me out a bit
