SecretKeySpec

extends Object
implements SecretKey KeySpec Serializable
java.lang.Object
   ↳ javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec

Class Overview

A key specification for a SecretKey and also a secret key implementation that is provider-independent. It can be used for raw secret keys that can be specified as byte[].

Public Constructors

public SecretKeySpec (byte[] key, String algorithm)

Added in API level 1

Creates a new SecretKeySpec for the specified key data and algorithm name.

Parameters
key byte: the key data.
algorithm String: the algorithm name.
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the key data or the algorithm name is null or if the key data is empty.

public SecretKeySpec (byte[] key, int offset, int len, String algorithm)

Added in API level 1

Creates a new SecretKeySpec for the key data from the specified buffer key starting at offset with length len and the specified algorithm name.

Parameters
key byte: the key data.
offset int: the offset.
len int: the size of the key data.
algorithm String: the algorithm name.
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the key data or the algorithm name is null, the key data is empty or offset and len do not specify a valid chunk in the buffer key.
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException if offset or len is negative.

Public Methods

public boolean equals (Object obj)

Added in API level 1

Compares the specified object with this SecretKeySpec instance.

Parameters
obj Object: the object to compare.
Returns
boolean true if the algorithm name and key of both object are equal, otherwise false.

public String getAlgorithm ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the algorithm name.

Returns
String the algorithm name.

public byte[] getEncoded ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the encoded form of this secret key.

Returns
byte[] the encoded form of this secret key.

public String getFormat ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the name of the format used to encode the key.

Returns
String the format name "RAW".

public int hashCode ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the hash code of this SecretKeySpec object.

Returns
int the hash code.
