oracle.security.crypto.cert.ext
Class PolicyConstraintsExtension

java.lang.Object
  extended by oracle.security.crypto.cert.X509Extension
      extended by oracle.security.crypto.cert.ext.PolicyConstraintsExtension

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

public class PolicyConstraintsExtension
extends X509Extension

Represents the Policy Constraints certificate extension from RFC 2459. At least one of the two fields, requireExplicitPolicy and inhibitPolicyMapping, must be preset for the extension to be valid.

Constructor Detail

PolicyConstraintsExtension

public PolicyConstraintsExtension()
Create a new extension with the appropriate OID type.

Note: An object created using this constructor may not be in a valid state. This constructor is intended primarily for use in conjunction with the X509Extension.input(java.io.InputStream) method.


PolicyConstraintsExtension

public PolicyConstraintsExtension(java.math.BigInteger requireExplicit,
                                  java.math.BigInteger inhibitMapping)
Creates a new extension with the specified values for requireExplicitPolicy and inhibitPolicyMapping. Extension is not critical.
Parameters:
requireExplicit - The number of additional certificates that may appear in the path before an explicit policy is required.
inhibitMapping - The number of additional certificates that may appear in the path before policy mapping is no longer permitted.

PolicyConstraintsExtension

public PolicyConstraintsExtension(java.math.BigInteger requireExplicit,
                                  java.math.BigInteger inhibitMapping,
                                  boolean critical)
Creates a new extension with the specified values for requireExplicitPolicy and inhibitPolicyMapping, and the given critical flag.
Parameters:
requireExplicit - The number of additional certificates that may appear in the path before an explicit policy is required (may be null).
inhibitMapping - The number of additional certificates that may appear in the path before policy mapping is no longer permitted (may be null).
critical - true if this extension is critical, false otherwise.

PolicyConstraintsExtension

public PolicyConstraintsExtension(java.io.InputStream is)
                           throws java.io.IOException
Throws:
java.io.IOException

Method Detail

getRequireExplicitPolicy

public java.math.BigInteger getRequireExplicitPolicy()
Gets the value for requireExplicitPolicy, or null if not defined for this extension.

getInhibitPolicyMapping

public java.math.BigInteger getInhibitPolicyMapping()
Gets the value for inhibitPolicyMapping, or null if not defined for this extension.

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Description copied from class: X509Extension
Returns a string representation of this object.
Overrides:
toString in class X509Extension
Returns:
a string representation
