Interface DSAPrivateKey

All Superinterfaces: DSAKey , Key , PrivateKey


The DSAPrivateKey interface is used to sign data using the DSA algorithm. An implementation of DSAPrivateKey interface must also implement the DSAKey interface methods. When all four components of the key (X,P,Q,G) are set, the key is initialized and ready for use.

Method Summary
 short getX (byte[] buffer,short offset)          Returns the value of the key in plain text.
 void setX (byte[] buffer,short offset,short length)          Sets the value of the key.

Method Detail

setX

void setX(byte[] buffer, short offset, short length) throws CryptoException

Sets the value of the key. When the base, prime and subprime parameters are initialized and the key value is set, the key is ready for use. The plain text data format is big-endian and right-aligned (the least significant bit is the least significant bit of last byte). Input key data is copied into the internal representation. Note:

  • If the key object implements the javacardx.crypto.KeyEncryption interface and the Cipher object specified via setKeyCipher() is not null, the key value is decrypted using the Cipher object.


Parameters:buffer - the input buffer

offset - the offset into the input buffer at which the modulus value begins

length - the length of the modulus

Throws: CryptoException- with the following reason code:

  • CryptoException.ILLEGAL_VALUE if the input key data length is inconsistent with the implementation or if input data decryption is required and fails.



getX

short getX(byte[] buffer, short offset)

Returns the value of the key in plain text. The data format is big-endian and right-aligned (the least significant bit is the least significant bit of last byte).

Parameters:buffer - the output buffer

offset - the offset into the output buffer at which the key value starts

Returns:the byte length of the key value returned

Throws: CryptoException- with the following reason code:

  • CryptoException.UNINITIALIZED_KEY if the value of the key has not been successfully initialized since the time the initialized state of the key was set to false.
