PKIXCertPathValidatorResult

public class PKIXCertPathValidatorResult
extends Object implements CertPathValidatorResult

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


This class represents the successful result of the PKIX certification path validation algorithm.

Instances of PKIXCertPathValidatorResult are returned by the validate method of CertPathValidator objects implementing the PKIX algorithm.

All PKIXCertPathValidatorResult objects contain the valid policy tree and subject public key resulting from the validation algorithm, as well as 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.

Summary

Public constructors

PKIXCertPathValidatorResult(TrustAnchor trustAnchor, PolicyNode policyTree, PublicKey subjectPublicKey)

Creates an instance of PKIXCertPathValidatorResult containing the specified parameters.

Public methods

Object clone()

Returns a copy of this object.

PolicyNode getPolicyTree()

Returns the root node of the valid policy tree resulting from the PKIX certification path validation algorithm.

PublicKey getPublicKey()

Returns the public key of the subject (target) of the certification path, including any inherited public key parameters if applicable.

TrustAnchor getTrustAnchor()

Returns the TrustAnchor describing the CA that served as a trust anchor for the certification path.

String toString()

Return a printable representation of this PKIXCertPathValidatorResult.

PKIXCertPathValidatorResult

added in API level 1
public PKIXCertPathValidatorResult (TrustAnchor trustAnchor, 
                PolicyNode policyTree, 
                PublicKey subjectPublicKey)

Creates an instance of PKIXCertPathValidatorResult containing the specified parameters.

Parameters
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 subjectPublicKey or trustAnchor parameters are null

Public methods

clone

added in API level 1
public Object clone ()

Returns a copy of this object.

Returns
Object the copy

getPolicyTree

added in API level 1
public PolicyNode getPolicyTree ()

Returns the root node of the valid policy tree resulting from the PKIX certification path validation algorithm. The PolicyNode object that is returned and any objects that it returns through public methods are immutable.

Most applications will not need to examine the valid policy tree. They can achieve their policy processing goals by setting the policy-related parameters in PKIXParameters. However, more sophisticated applications, especially those that process policy qualifiers, may need to traverse the valid policy tree using the PolicyNode.getParent and PolicyNode.getChildren methods.

Returns
PolicyNode the root node of the valid policy tree, or null if there are no valid policies

getPublicKey

added in API level 1
public PublicKey getPublicKey ()

Returns the public key of the subject (target) of the certification path, including any inherited public key parameters if applicable.

Returns
PublicKey the public key of the subject (never null)

getTrustAnchor

added in API level 1
public TrustAnchor getTrustAnchor ()

Returns the TrustAnchor describing the CA that served as a trust anchor for the certification path.

Returns
TrustAnchor the TrustAnchor (never null)

toString

added in API level 1
public String toString ()

Return a printable representation of this PKIXCertPathValidatorResult.

Returns
String a String describing the contents of this PKIXCertPathValidatorResult
