public final class PRNGEncryptor
extends StreamEncryptor

The PRNGEncryptor is used in conjunction with a PseudoRandomSource to encrypt data provided to this class in a stream interface to the calling class.

A PRNG represents a Pseudo Random Number Generator.

It provides a similar relationship or functionality that the BlockEncryptor uses for BlockEncryptorEngines. That is, it allows you to use a PseudoRandomSource as an output stream instead of relying on the encryption mechanisms exposed in the PseudoRandomSource class.

Constructor Detail

PRNGEncryptor

public PRNGEncryptor(PseudoRandomSource keystream,
                     OutputStream output)
Creates a PRNGEncryptor object given a specified output stream and a keystream will generate numbers to encrypt with.

Parameters:
output - An OutputStream object that will contain the ciphertext after the class has completed its task.
keystream - A PseudoRandomSource object to create random numbers that provide a secure method for encrypting the stream.

Description copied from class: StreamEncryptor
Encrypts data using the specific implementation of the chosen stream encryptor.

Overrides:
encrypt in class StreamEncryptor
Since:
JDE 3.6.0

Following copied from class: StreamEncryptor
Parameters:
plaintext - A byte array containing the input to the stream cipher.
plaintextOffset - The offset, or initial position within the array, of the information to encrypt.
length - The length of the information to encrypt.
ciphertext - A byte array to hold the output of the stream cipher.
Throws:
CryptoTokenException - Thrown when a problem occurs with the crypto token or the crypto token is invalid.
