Constructor Detail

ECParameterSpec

public ECParameterSpec(EllipticCurve curve,
                       ECPoint g,
                       BigInteger n,
                       int h)
Creates elliptic curve domain parameters based on the specified values.

Parameters:
curve - the elliptic curve which this parameter defines.
g - the generator which is also known as the base point.
n - the order of the generator g.
h - the cofactor.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if curve, g, or n is null.
IllegalArgumentException - if n or h is not positive.
