Class SkipjackDecryptorEngine

java.lang.Object
  |
  +--net.rim.device.api.crypto.SkipjackDecryptorEngine
All Implemented Interfaces:
BlockDecryptorEngine, SymmetricKeyDecryptorEngine

public final class SkipjackDecryptorEngine
extends Object
implements SymmetricKeyDecryptorEngine

The SkipjackDecryptorEngine class implements the decryption functionality of the Skipjack block cipher.

We implemented Skipjack as it's defined in Skipjack

Skipjack operates on 64 bit blocks and has a key length of 80 bits.
