javax.net.ssl
Class SSLParameters

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.net.ssl.SSLParameters

public class SSLParameters
extends Object

Encapsulates parameters for an SSL/TLS connection. The parameters are the list of ciphersuites to be accepted in an SSL/TLS handshake, the list of protocols to be allowed, and whether SSL/TLS servers should request or require client authentication.

SSLParameters can be created via the constructors in this class. Objects can also be obtained using the getSSLParameters() methods in SSLSocket and SSLEngine or the getDefaultSSLParameters() and getSupportedSSLParameters() methods in SSLContext.

SSLParameters can be applied to a connection via the methods SSLSocket.setSSLParameters() and SSLEngine.getSSLParameters().

1.6

Constructor Detail

SSLParameters

public SSLParameters()
Constructs SSLParameters.

The cipherSuites and protocols values are set to null, wantClientAuth and needClientAuth are set to false.


SSLParameters

public SSLParameters(String[] cipherSuites)
Constructs SSLParameters from the specified array of ciphersuites. Calling this constructor is equivalent to calling the no-args constructor followed by setCipherSuites(cipherSuites);.

Parameters:
cipherSuites - the array of ciphersuites (or null)

SSLParameters

public SSLParameters(String[] cipherSuites,
                     String[] protocols)
Constructs SSLParameters from the specified array of ciphersuites and protocols. Calling this constructor is equivalent to calling the no-args constructor followed by setCipherSuites(cipherSuites); setProtocols(protocols);.

Parameters:
cipherSuites - the array of ciphersuites (or null)
protocols - the array of protocols (or null)
Method Detail

getCipherSuites

public String[] getCipherSuites()
Returns a copy of the array of ciphersuites or null if none have been set.

Returns:
a copy of the array of ciphersuites or null if none have been set.

setCipherSuites

public void setCipherSuites(String[] cipherSuites)
Sets the array of ciphersuites.

Parameters:
cipherSuites - the array of ciphersuites (or null)

getProtocols

public String[] getProtocols()
Returns a copy of the array of protocols or null if none have been set.

Returns:
a copy of the array of protocols or null if none have been set.

setProtocols

public void setProtocols(String[] protocols)
Sets the array of protocols.

Parameters:
protocols - the array of protocols (or null)

getWantClientAuth

public boolean getWantClientAuth()
Returns whether client authentication should be requested.

Returns:
whether client authentication should be requested.

setWantClientAuth

public void setWantClientAuth(boolean wantClientAuth)
Sets whether client authentication should be requested. Calling this method clears the needClientAuth flag.

Parameters:
wantClientAuth - whether client authentication should be requested

getNeedClientAuth

public boolean getNeedClientAuth()
Returns whether client authentication should be required.

Returns:
whether client authentication should be required.

setNeedClientAuth

public void setNeedClientAuth(boolean needClientAuth)
Sets whether client authentication should be required. Calling this method clears the wantClientAuth flag.

Parameters:
needClientAuth - whether client authentication should be required
