Uses of Interface
java.security.PrivateKey

Packages that use PrivateKey
java.security Provides the classes and interfaces for the security framework. 
java.security.interfaces Provides interfaces for generating RSA (Rivest, Shamir and Adleman AsymmetricCipher algorithm) keys as defined in the RSA Laboratory Technical Note PKCS#1, and DSA (Digital Signature Algorithm) keys as defined in NIST's FIPS-186. 
javax.crypto.interfaces Provides interfaces for Diffie-Hellman keys as defined in RSA Laboratories' PKCS #3. 
javax.net.ssl Provides classes for the secure socket package. 
javax.security.auth.x500 This package contains the classes that should be used to store X500 Principal and X500 Private Crendentials in a Subject
 

Uses of PrivateKey in java.security
 

Methods in java.security that return PrivateKey
protected abstract  PrivateKey KeyFactorySpi.engineGeneratePrivate(KeySpec keySpec)

 PrivateKey KeyPair.getPrivate()
          Returns a reference to the private key component of this key pair.
 PrivateKey Signer.getPrivateKey()
          Deprecated. Returns this signer's private key.
 PrivateKey KeyStore.PrivateKeyEntry.getPrivateKey()
          Gets the PrivateKey from this entry.
 

Methods in java.security with parameters of type PrivateKey
protected abstract  void SignatureSpi.engineInitSign(PrivateKey privateKey)
          Initializes this signature object with the specified private key for signing operations.
protected  void SignatureSpi.engineInitSign(PrivateKey privateKey, SecureRandom random)

          Constructs a PrivateKeyEntry with a PrivateKey and corresponding certificate chain.
SignedObject(Serializable object, PrivateKey signingKey, Signature signingEngine)
          Constructs a SignedObject from any Serializable object.
