public class: PKCS8EncodedKeySpec [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.security.spec.EncodedKeySpec
      java.security.spec.PKCS8EncodedKeySpec

All Implemented Interfaces:
    KeySpec

This class represents the ASN.1 encoding of a private key, encoded according to the ASN.1 type PrivateKeyInfo. The PrivateKeyInfo syntax is defined in the PKCS#8 standard as follows:
PrivateKeyInfo ::= SEQUENCE {
  version Version,
  privateKeyAlgorithm PrivateKeyAlgorithmIdentifier,
  privateKey PrivateKey,
  attributes [0] IMPLICIT Attributes OPTIONAL }

Version ::= INTEGER

PrivateKeyAlgorithmIdentifier ::= AlgorithmIdentifier

PrivateKey ::= OCTET STRING

Attributes ::= SET OF Attribute
Constructor:
 public PKCS8EncodedKeySpec(byte[] encodedKey) 
Method from java.security.spec.PKCS8EncodedKeySpec Summary:

Method from java.security.spec.PKCS8EncodedKeySpec Detail:
 public byte[] getEncoded() 
    Returns the key bytes, encoded according to the PKCS #8 standard.
 public final String getFormat() 
    Returns the name of the encoding format associated with this key specification.
