Class PSSParameterSpec

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.security.spec.PSSParameterSpec
All Implemented Interfaces:
AlgorithmParameterSpec

public class PSSParameterSpec
extends Object
implements AlgorithmParameterSpec

This class specifies a parameter spec for RSA-PSS signature scheme, as defined in the PKCS#1 v2.1 standard.

Its ASN.1 definition in PKCS#1 standard is described below:

 RSASSA-PSS-params ::= SEQUENCE {
   hashAlgorithm      [0] OAEP-PSSDigestAlgorithms  DEFAULT sha1,
   maskGenAlgorithm   [1] PKCS1MGFAlgorithms  DEFAULT mgf1SHA1,
   saltLength         [2] INTEGER  DEFAULT 20,
   trailerField       [3] INTEGER  DEFAULT 1
 }
 
where
 OAEP-PSSDigestAlgorithms    ALGORITHM-IDENTIFIER ::= {
   { OID id-sha1 PARAMETERS NULL   }|
   { OID id-sha256 PARAMETERS NULL }|
   { OID id-sha384 PARAMETERS NULL }|
   { OID id-sha512 PARAMETERS NULL },
   ...  -- Allows for future expansion --
 }

 PKCS1MGFAlgorithms    ALGORITHM-IDENTIFIER ::= {
   { OID id-mgf1 PARAMETERS OAEP-PSSDigestAlgorithms },
   ...  -- Allows for future expansion --
 }
 

Note: the PSSParameterSpec.DEFAULT uses the following: message digest -- "SHA-1" mask generation function (mgf) -- "MGF1" parameters for mgf -- MGF1ParameterSpec.SHA1 SaltLength -- 20 TrailerField -- 1

Since:
1.4

Constructor Detail

PSSParameterSpec

public PSSParameterSpec(String mdName,
                        String mgfName,
                        AlgorithmParameterSpec mgfSpec,
                        int saltLen,
                        int trailerField)
Creates a new PSSParameterSpec as defined in the PKCS #1 standard using the specified message digest, mask generation function, parameters for mask generation function, salt length, and trailer field values.

Parameters:
mdName - the algorithm name of the hash function.
mgfName - the algorithm name of the mask generation function.
mgfSpec - the parameters for the mask generation function. If null is specified, null will be returned by getMGFParameters().
saltLen - the length of salt.
trailerField - the value of the trailer field.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if mdName, or mgfName is null.
IllegalArgumentException - if saltLen or trailerField is less than 0.
Since:
1.5

PSSParameterSpec

public PSSParameterSpec(int saltLen)
Creates a new PSSParameterSpec using the specified salt length and other default values as defined in PKCS#1.

Parameters:
saltLen - the length of salt in bits to be used in PKCS#1 PSS encoding.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if saltLen is less than 0.
