Interface SignedInfo

All Superinterfaces:
XMLStructure

public interface SignedInfo
extends XMLStructure

An representation of the XML SignedInfo element as defined in the W3C Recommendation for XML-Signature Syntax and Processing. The XML Schema Definition is defined as:


 <element name="SignedInfo" type="ds:SignedInfoType"/> 
 <complexType name="SignedInfoType">
   <sequence> 
     <element ref="ds:CanonicalizationMethod"/> 
     <element ref="ds:SignatureMethod"/> 
     <element ref="ds:Reference" maxOccurs="unbounded"/> 
   </sequence>  
   <attribute name="Id" type="ID" use="optional"/> 
 </complexType>
 
A SignedInfo instance may be created by invoking one of the newSignedInfo methods of the XMLSignatureFactory class.

Since:
1.6
