Interface X509Data

All Superinterfaces:
XMLStructure

public interface X509Data
extends XMLStructure

A representation of the XML X509Data element as defined in the W3C Recommendation for XML-Signature Syntax and Processing. An X509Data object contains one or more identifers of keys or X.509 certificates (or certificates' identifiers or a revocation list). The XML Schema Definition is defined as:

    <element name="X509Data" type="ds:X509DataType"/>
    <complexType name="X509DataType"> 
        <sequence maxOccurs="unbounded"> 
          <choice> 
            <element name="X509IssuerSerial" type="ds:X509IssuerSerialType"/>
            <element name="X509SKI" type="base64Binary"/>
            <element name="X509SubjectName" type="string"/> 
            <element name="X509Certificate" type="base64Binary"/>
            <element name="X509CRL" type="base64Binary"/> 
            <any namespace="##other" processContents="lax"/>
          </choice>  
        </sequence>
    </complexType>

    <complexType name="X509IssuerSerialType"> 
      <sequence> 
        <element name="X509IssuerName" type="string"/> 
        <element name="X509SerialNumber" type="integer"/> 
      </sequence>
    </complexType>
 
An X509Data instance may be created by invoking the newX509Data methods of the KeyInfoFactory class and passing it a list of one or more XMLStructures representing X.509 content; for example:
   KeyInfoFactory factory = KeyInfoFactory.getInstance("DOM");
   X509Data x509Data = factory.newX509Data
       (Collections.singletonList("cn=Alice"));
