PKIXCertPathBuilderResult

public class PKIXCertPathBuilderResult
extends PKIXCertPathValidatorResult implements CertPathBuilderResult

java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.security.cert.PKIXCertPathValidatorResult
     ↳ java.security.cert.PKIXCertPathBuilderResult


This class represents the successful result of the PKIX certification path builder algorithm. All certification paths that are built and returned using this algorithm are also validated according to the PKIX certification path validation algorithm.

Instances of PKIXCertPathBuilderResult are returned by the build method of CertPathBuilder objects implementing the PKIX algorithm.

All PKIXCertPathBuilderResult objects contain the certification path constructed by the build algorithm, the valid policy tree and subject public key resulting from the build algorithm, and a TrustAnchor describing the certification authority (CA) that served as a trust anchor for the certification path.

Concurrent Access

Unless otherwise specified, the methods defined in this class are not thread-safe. Multiple threads that need to access a single object concurrently should synchronize amongst themselves and provide the necessary locking. Multiple threads each manipulating separate objects need not synchronize.

PKIXCertPathBuilderResult

Added in API level 1
PKIXCertPathBuilderResult (CertPath certPath, 
                TrustAnchor trustAnchor, 
                PolicyNode policyTree, 
                PublicKey subjectPublicKey)

Creates an instance of PKIXCertPathBuilderResult containing the specified parameters.

Parameters
certPath CertPath: the validated CertPath
trustAnchor TrustAnchor: a TrustAnchor describing the CA that served as a trust anchor for the certification path
policyTree PolicyNode: the immutable valid policy tree, or null if there are no valid policies
subjectPublicKey PublicKey: the public key of the subject
Throws
NullPointerException if the certPath, trustAnchor or subjectPublicKey parameters are null

Public methods

getCertPath

Added in API level 1
CertPath getCertPath ()

Returns the built and validated certification path. The CertPath object does not include the trust anchor. Instead, use the getTrustAnchor() method to obtain the TrustAnchor that served as the trust anchor for the certification path.

Returns
CertPath the built and validated CertPath (never null)

toString

Added in API level 1
String toString ()

Return a printable representation of this PKIXCertPathBuilderResult.

Returns
String a String describing the contents of this PKIXCertPathBuilderResult
