Interface XECPublicKey

All Superinterfaces:

public interface XECPublicKey extends XECKey, PublicKey
An interface for an elliptic curve public key as defined by RFC 7748. These keys are distinct from the keys represented by ECPublicKey, and they are intended for use with algorithms based on RFC 7748 such as the XDH KeyAgreement algorithm. An XEC public key is a particular point on the curve, which is represented using only its u-coordinate as described in RFC 7748. A u-coordinate is an element of the field of integers modulo some value that is determined by the algorithm parameters. This field element is represented by a BigInteger which may hold any value. That is, the BigInteger is not restricted to the range of canonical field elements.
  • Method Details

    • getU

      BigInteger getU()
      Get the u coordinate of the point.
      the u-coordinate, represented using a BigInteger which may hold any value
    • getParams

      default AlgorithmParameterSpec getParams()
      Returns the parameters associated with this key. The parameters are optional and may be either explicitly specified or implicitly created during key pair generation.
      Specified by:
      getParams in interface AsymmetricKey
      Specified by:
      getParams in interface XECKey
      Implementation Requirements:
      The default implementation returns null.
      the associated parameters, may be null
