oracle.security.crypto.cert
Class Attribute

java.lang.Object
  extended by oracle.security.crypto.cert.Attribute

All Implemented Interfaces:
java.io.Externalizable, java.io.Serializable, oracle.security.crypto.asn1.ASN1Object, oracle.security.crypto.util.Streamable

public class Attribute
extends java.lang.Object
implements oracle.security.crypto.asn1.ASN1Object, java.io.Externalizable

An attribute, as defined in X.501 and used in various PKIX and PKCS protocols, consists of a type (OID) and a set of 1 or more values defined by the given type.

  Attribute ::= SEQUENCE {
  type    AttributeType,
  values  SET (1..MAX) OF AttributeValue
  }
 
  AttributeType ::= OBJECT IDENTIFIER
 
  AttributeValue ::= ANY DEFINED BY AttributeType
 
See Also:
AttributeSet, AttributeTypeAndValue, Serialized Form

Parameters:
type - OID specifiying the type of the attribute.

Attribute

public Attribute(oracle.security.crypto.asn1.ASN1ObjectID type,
                 oracle.security.crypto.asn1.ASN1Object value)
Creates a new Attribute of the specified type, with the specified (single) value.
Parameters:
type - OID specifiying the type of the attribute.
value - a value of the attribute.
