Class PKCS1SignatureVerifier

java.lang.Object
  extended by net.rim.device.api.crypto.PKCS1SignatureVerifier
All Implemented Interfaces:
SignatureVerifier

public final class PKCS1SignatureVerifier
extends Object
implements SignatureVerifier

The PKCS1SignatureVerifier class can verify an RSA PKCS#1 signature.

We implemented the PKCS1 verification as per the PKCS #1 version 2.1 document.
