Class Overview

MessageDigestSpi is the Service Provider Interface (SPI) definition for MessageDigest. Examples of digest algorithms are MD5 and SHA. A digest is a secure one way hash function for a stream of bytes. It acts like a fingerprint for a stream of bytes.

Public Methods

public Object clone ()

Added in API level 1

Creates and returns a copy of this Object. The default implementation returns a so-called "shallow" copy: It creates a new instance of the same class and then copies the field values (including object references) from this instance to the new instance. A "deep" copy, in contrast, would also recursively clone nested objects. A subclass that needs to implement this kind of cloning should call super.clone() to create the new instance and then create deep copies of the nested, mutable objects.

Returns
Object a copy of this object.
Throws
CloneNotSupportedException

Protected Methods

protected abstract byte[] engineDigest ()

Added in API level 1

Computes and returns the final hash value for this MessageDigestSpi. After the digest is computed the receiver is reset.

Returns
byte[] the computed one way hash value.

See also:

protected int engineDigest (byte[] buf, int offset, int len)

Added in API level 1

Computes and stores the final hash value for this MessageDigestSpi. After the digest is computed the receiver is reset.

Parameters
buf byte: the buffer to store the result in.
offset int: the index of the first byte in buf to store in.
len int: the number of bytes allocated for the digest.
Returns
int the number of bytes written to buf.
Throws
DigestException if an error occures.
IllegalArgumentException if offset or len are not valid in respect to buf.

See also:

protected int engineGetDigestLength ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the engine digest length in bytes. If the implementation does not implement this function 0 is returned.

Returns
int the digest length in bytes, or 0.

protected abstract void engineReset ()

Added in API level 1

Puts this MessageDigestSpi back in an initial state, such that it is ready to compute a one way hash value.

protected abstract void engineUpdate (byte[] input, int offset, int len)

Added in API level 1

Updates this MessageDigestSpi using the given byte[].

Parameters
input byte: the byte array.
offset int: the index of the first byte in input to update from.
len int: the number of bytes in input to update from.
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if offset or len are not valid in respect to input.

protected abstract void engineUpdate (byte input)

Added in API level 1

Updates this MessageDigestSpi using the given byte.

Parameters
input byte: the byte to update this MessageDigestSpi with.

See also:

protected void engineUpdate (ByteBuffer input)

Added in API level 1

Updates this MessageDigestSpi using the given input.

Parameters
input ByteBuffer: the ByteBuffer.
