Uses of Interface
java.security.PublicKey

Packages that use PublicKey
java.security Provides the classes and interfaces for the security framework. 
java.security.cert Provides classes and interfaces for parsing and managing certificates, certificate revocation lists (CRLs), and certification paths. 
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.security.cert Provides classes for public key certificates. 
javax.xml.crypto.dsig.keyinfo Classes for parsing and processing KeyInfo elements and structures.
