Class Overview

This class defines the Service Provider Interface (SPI) for the CertificateFactory class. This SPI must be implemented for each certificate type a security provider wishes to support.

Summary

Public Methods

public abstract CRL engineGenerateCRL (InputStream inStream)

Added in API level 1

Generates and initializes a Certificate Revocation List (CRL) from the provided input stream.

Parameters
inStream InputStream: the stream from where data is read to create the CRL.
Returns
CRL an CRL instance.
Throws
CRLException if parsing problems are detected.

public abstract Collection<? extends CRL> engineGenerateCRLs (InputStream inStream)

Added in API level 1

Generates and initializes a collection of Certificate Revocation List (CRL) from the provided input stream.

Parameters
inStream InputStream: the stream from which the data is read to create the CRLs.
Returns
Collection<? extends CRL> a collection of CRLs.
Throws
CRLException if parsing problems are detected.

public CertPath engineGenerateCertPath (InputStream inStream, String encoding)

Added in API level 1

Generates a CertPath (a certificate chain) from the given inputStream, assuming the given encoding from engineGetCertPathEncodings().

Parameters
inStream InputStream
encoding String
Returns
CertPath
Throws
CertificateException if parsing problems are detected.
UnsupportedOperationException if the provider does not implement this method.

public CertPath engineGenerateCertPath (List<? extends Certificate> certificates)

Added in API level 1

Generates a CertPath from the provided list of certificates. The encoding is the default encoding.

Parameters
certificates List: the list containing certificates in a format supported by the CertificateFactory.
Returns
CertPath a CertPath initialized from the provided data.
Throws
CertificateException if parsing problems are detected.
UnsupportedOperationException if the provider does not implement this method.

public CertPath engineGenerateCertPath (InputStream inStream)

Added in API level 1

Generates a CertPath from the provided InputStream. The default encoding scheme is applied.

Parameters
inStream InputStream: an input stream with encoded data.
Returns
CertPath a CertPath initialized from the provided data.
Throws
CertificateException if parsing problems are detected.

public abstract Certificate engineGenerateCertificate (InputStream inStream)

Added in API level 1

Generates and initializes a Certificate from the provided input stream.

Parameters
inStream InputStream: the stream from which the data is read to create the certificate.
Returns
Certificate an initialized certificate.
Throws
CertificateException if parsing problems are detected.

public abstract Collection<? extends Certificate> engineGenerateCertificates (InputStream inStream)

Added in API level 1

Generates and initializes a collection of certificates from the provided input stream.

Parameters
inStream InputStream: the stream from where data is read to create the certificates.
Returns
Collection<? extends Certificate> a collection of certificates.
Throws
CertificateException if parsing problems are detected.

public Iterator<String> engineGetCertPathEncodings ()

Added in API level 1

Returns an Iterator over the supported CertPath encodings (as Strings). The first element is the default encoding.

Returns
Iterator<String> an iterator over supported CertPath encodings (as Strings).
