public interface AlgorithmConstraints

This interface specifies constraints for cryptographic algorithms, keys (key sizes), and other algorithm parameters.

AlgorithmConstraints objects are immutable. An implementation of this interface should not provide methods that can change the state of an instance once it has been created.

Note that AlgorithmConstraints can be used to represent the restrictions described by the security properties jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms and jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms, or could be used by a concrete PKIXCertPathChecker to check whether a specified certificate in the certification path contains the required algorithm constraints.

Public Method Summary

abstract boolean
permits(Set<CryptoPrimitive> primitives, String algorithm, AlgorithmParameters parameters)
Determines whether an algorithm is granted permission for the specified cryptographic primitives.
abstract boolean
permits(Set<CryptoPrimitive> primitives, String algorithm, Key key, AlgorithmParameters parameters)
Determines whether an algorithm and the corresponding key are granted permission for the specified cryptographic primitives.
abstract boolean
permits(Set<CryptoPrimitive> primitives, Key key)
Determines whether a key is granted permission for the specified cryptographic primitives.

Public Methods

public abstract boolean permits (Set<CryptoPrimitive> primitives, String algorithm, AlgorithmParameters parameters)

Determines whether an algorithm is granted permission for the specified cryptographic primitives.

Parameters
primitives a set of cryptographic primitives
algorithm the algorithm name
parameters the algorithm parameters, or null if no additional parameters
Returns
  • true if the algorithm is permitted and can be used for all of the specified cryptographic primitives
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if primitives or algorithm is null or empty

public abstract boolean permits (Set<CryptoPrimitive> primitives, String algorithm, Key key, AlgorithmParameters parameters)

Determines whether an algorithm and the corresponding key are granted permission for the specified cryptographic primitives.

Parameters
primitives a set of cryptographic primitives
algorithm the algorithm name
key the key
parameters the algorithm parameters, or null if no additional parameters
Returns
  • true if the key and the algorithm can be used for all of the specified cryptographic primitives
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if primitives or algorithm is null or empty, or the key is null

public abstract boolean permits (Set<CryptoPrimitive> primitives, Key key)

Determines whether a key is granted permission for the specified cryptographic primitives.

This method is usually used to check key size and key usage.

Parameters
primitives a set of cryptographic primitives
key the key
Returns
  • true if the key can be used for all of the specified cryptographic primitives
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if primitives is null or empty, or the key is null
