DSAKeyPairGenerator

java.security.interfaces.DSAKeyPairGenerator

Class Overview

The interface for key generators that can generate DSA key pairs.

Summary

Public Methods
abstract void initialize(DSAParams params, SecureRandom random)
Initializes this generator with the prime (p), subprime (q), and base (g) values from the specified parameters.
abstract void initialize(int modlen, boolean genParams, SecureRandom random)
Initializes this generator for the specified modulus length.

Public Methods

public abstract void initialize (DSAParams params, SecureRandom random)

Added in API level 1

Initializes this generator with the prime (p), subprime (q), and base (g) values from the specified parameters.

Parameters
params DSAParams: the parameter values.
random SecureRandom: the source of randomness.
Throws
InvalidParameterException if the specified parameter values are null or invalid.

public abstract void initialize (int modlen, boolean genParams, SecureRandom random)

Added in API level 1

Initializes this generator for the specified modulus length. Valid values for the modulus length are the multiples of 8 between 512 and 1024.

The parameter genParams specifies whether this method should generate new prime (p), subprime (q), and base (g) values or whether it will use the pre-calculated values for the specified modulus length. Default parameters are available for modulus lengths of 512 and 1024 bits.

Parameters
modlen int: the length of the modulus in bits.
genParams boolean: whether new values should be generated.
random SecureRandom: the source of randomness.
Throws
InvalidParameterException if the specified modulus length is not valid, or if there are no pre-calculated values and genParams is false.
