CertPathValidatorSpi

public abstract class CertPathValidatorSpi
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorSpi


The Service Provider Interface (SPI) for the CertPathValidator class. All CertPathValidator implementations must include a class (the SPI class) that extends this class (CertPathValidatorSpi) and implements all of its methods. In general, instances of this class should only be accessed through the CertPathValidator class. For details, see the Java Cryptography Architecture.

Concurrent Access

Instances of this class need not be protected against concurrent access from multiple threads. Threads that need to access a single CertPathValidatorSpi instance concurrently should synchronize amongst themselves and provide the necessary locking before calling the wrapping CertPathValidator object.

However, implementations of CertPathValidatorSpi may still encounter concurrency issues, since multiple threads each manipulating a different CertPathValidatorSpi instance need not synchronize.

Summary

Public constructors

CertPathValidatorSpi()

The default constructor.

Public methods

CertPathChecker engineGetRevocationChecker()

Returns a CertPathChecker that this implementation uses to check the revocation status of certificates.

abstract CertPathValidatorResult engineValidate(CertPath certPath, CertPathParameters params)

Validates the specified certification path using the specified algorithm parameter set.

Inherited methods

From class java.lang.Object

Public constructors

CertPathValidatorSpi

Added in API level 1
CertPathValidatorSpi ()

The default constructor.

Public methods

engineGetRevocationChecker

Added in API level 24
CertPathChecker engineGetRevocationChecker ()

Returns a CertPathChecker that this implementation uses to check the revocation status of certificates. A PKIX implementation returns objects of type PKIXRevocationChecker.

The primary purpose of this method is to allow callers to specify additional input parameters and options specific to revocation checking. See the class description of CertPathValidator for an example.

This method was added to version 1.8 of the Java Platform Standard Edition. In order to maintain backwards compatibility with existing service providers, this method cannot be abstract and by default throws an UnsupportedOperationException.

Returns
CertPathChecker a CertPathChecker that this implementation uses to check the revocation status of certificates
Throws
UnsupportedOperationException if this method is not supported

engineValidate

Added in API level 1
CertPathValidatorResult engineValidate (CertPath certPath, 
                CertPathParameters params)

Validates the specified certification path using the specified algorithm parameter set.

The CertPath specified must be of a type that is supported by the validation algorithm, otherwise an InvalidAlgorithmParameterException will be thrown. For example, a CertPathValidator that implements the PKIX algorithm validates CertPath objects of type X.509.

Parameters
certPath CertPath: the CertPath to be validated
params CertPathParameters: the algorithm parameters
Returns
CertPathValidatorResult the result of the validation algorithm
Throws
CertPathValidatorException if the CertPath does not validate
InvalidAlgorithmParameterException if the specified parameters or the type of the specified CertPath are inappropriate for this CertPathValidator
