public interface: KeyValue [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:

A representation of the XML KeyValue element as defined in the W3C Recommendation for XML-Signature Syntax and Processing. A KeyValue object contains a single public key that may be useful in validating the signature. The XML schema definition is defined as:
   <element name="KeyValue" type="ds:KeyValueType"/>
   <complexType name="KeyValueType" mixed="true">
       <element ref="ds:DSAKeyValue"/>
       <element ref="ds:RSAKeyValue"/>
       <any namespace="##other" processContents="lax"/>

   <element name="DSAKeyValue" type="ds:DSAKeyValueType"/>
   <complexType name="DSAKeyValueType">
       <sequence minOccurs="0">
         <element name="P" type="ds:CryptoBinary"/>
         <element name="Q" type="ds:CryptoBinary"/>
       <element name="G" type="ds:CryptoBinary" minOccurs="0"/>
       <element name="Y" type="ds:CryptoBinary"/>
       <element name="J" type="ds:CryptoBinary" minOccurs="0"/>
       <sequence minOccurs="0">
         <element name="Seed" type="ds:CryptoBinary"/>
         <element name="PgenCounter" type="ds:CryptoBinary"/>

   <element name="RSAKeyValue" type="ds:RSAKeyValueType"/>
   <complexType name="RSAKeyValueType">
       <element name="Modulus" type="ds:CryptoBinary"/>
       <element name="Exponent" type="ds:CryptoBinary"/>
A KeyValue instance may be created by invoking the newKeyValue method of the KeyInfoFactory class, and passing it a java.security.PublicKey representing the value of the public key. Here is an example of creating a KeyValue from a DSAPublicKey of a java.security.cert.Certificate stored in a java.security.KeyStore :
KeyStore keyStore = KeyStore.getInstance(KeyStore.getDefaultType());
PublicKey dsaPublicKey = keyStore.getCertificate("myDSASigningCert").getPublicKey();
KeyInfoFactory factory = KeyInfoFactory.getInstance("DOM");
KeyValue keyValue = factory.newKeyValue(dsaPublicKey);
This class returns the DSAKeyValue and RSAKeyValue elements as objects of type DSAPublicKey and RSAPublicKey , respectively. Note that not all of the fields in the schema are accessible as parameters of these types.
Field Summary
static final  String DSA_TYPE    URI identifying the DSA KeyValue KeyInfo type: http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#DSAKeyValue. This can be specified as the value of the type parameter of the RetrievalMethod class to describe a remote DSAKeyValue structure. 
static final  String RSA_TYPE    URI identifying the RSA KeyValue KeyInfo type: http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#RSAKeyValue. This can be specified as the value of the type parameter of the RetrievalMethod class to describe a remote RSAKeyValue structure.
