ECPoint

public class ECPoint
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.security.spec.ECPoint


This immutable class represents a point on an elliptic curve (EC) in affine coordinates. Other coordinate systems can extend this class to represent this point in other coordinates.

Summary

Fields

public static final ECPoint POINT_INFINITY

This defines the point at infinity.

Public constructors

ECPoint(BigInteger x, BigInteger y)

Creates an ECPoint from the specified affine x-coordinate x and affine y-coordinate y.

Public methods

boolean equals(Object obj)

Compares this elliptic curve point for equality with the specified object.

BigInteger getAffineX()

Returns the affine x-coordinate x.

BigInteger getAffineY()

Returns the affine y-coordinate y.

int hashCode()

Returns a hash code value for this elliptic curve point.

Inherited methods

From class java.lang.Object
