The function a subclass would implement to finish decoding the key.

Parameters:
encodedSignature - A byte array containing the encoded signature.
signatureAlgorithm - A String representing the algorithm.
Returns:
The decoded signature.
Throws:
NoSuchAlgorithmException - Thrown if the specified algorithm cannot be found.
InvalidSignatureEncodingException - Thrown if the signature is formatted incorrectly.
