Module java.base

Package javax.net.ssl


package javax.net.ssl
Provides classes for the secure socket package. Using the secure socket classes, you can communicate using SSL or a related security protocol to reliably detect any errors introduced into the network byte stream and to optionally encrypt the data and/or authenticate the communicating peers.

  • Interface Summary
    Interface
    Description
    This interface is implemented by any class which wants to receive notifications about the completion of an SSL protocol handshake on a given SSL connection.
    This class is the base interface for hostname verification.
    This is the base interface for JSSE key managers.
    This class is the base interface for providing algorithm-specific information to a KeyManagerFactory or TrustManagerFactory.
    In SSL, sessions are used to describe an ongoing relationship between two entities.
    This interface is implemented by objects which want to know when they are being bound or unbound from a SSLSession.
    A SSLSessionContext represents a set of SSLSessions associated with a single entity.
    This is the base interface for JSSE trust managers.
    Instances of this interface manage which X509 certificate-based key pairs are used to authenticate the local side of a secure socket.
    Instance of this interface manage which X509 certificates may be used to authenticate the remote side of a secure socket.
  • Class Summary
    Class
    Description
    A wrapper for CertPathParameters.
