SecretKeyFactory

Class Overview

The public API for SecretKeyFactory implementations.

Secret key factories provide the following functionality:

  • convert SecretKey objects to and from KeySpec objects
  • translate SecretKey objects from one provider implementation to another
Which key specifications are supported by the generateSecret(KeySpec) and getKeySpec(SecretKey, Class) is provider dependent.

Summary
