net.rim.device.api.crypto.encoder
Class EncodedSignature

java.lang.Object
  extended by net.rim.device.api.crypto.encoder.EncodedSignature

public class EncodedSignature
extends Object

Stores encoded signatures using any of the supported encoding algorithms.

Since the algorithm data is stored along with the encoded signature, it is possible to decode a signature without knowing the algorithm explicitly. SignatureDecoder governs all the encoding and decoding details for the developer.
