                                          KEAPublicKey remoteEphemeralPublicKey)
                                   throws CryptoTokenException,
                                          CryptoUnsupportedOperationException,
                                          InvalidCryptoSystemException,
                                          InvalidKeyException
Generates the shared secret using given local and remote, public and private keys.

Parameters:
localStaticPrivateKey - The local static private key to use.
localEphemeralPrivateKey - The local ephemeral private key to use.
remoteStaticPublicKey - The remote static public key to use.
remoteEphemeralPublicKey - The remote ephemeral public key to use.
Returns:
A byte array containing the shared secret data.
Throws:
CryptoTokenException - Thrown if an error occurs with a crypto token of the crypto token is invalid.
CryptoUnsupportedOperationException - Thrown if a call is made to an unsupported operation.
InvalidCryptoSystemException - Thrown if the specified crypto system is invalid.
InvalidKeyException - Thrown if the calculated shared secret is not contained within the expected subgroup. This may be thrown if a small subgroup attack is detected.
