java.lang.Object net.rim.device.api.crypto.ECDSASignatureVerifier
public final class ECDSASignatureVerifier
Verifies an ECDSA signature on a message.
Elliptic Curve cryptography is defined in various standards including P1363 and ANSI X9.62. ECDSA is specifically defined in ANSI X9.62.
ECDSASignatureSigner
Constructor Summary  


ECDSASignatureVerifier(ECPublicKey key,
byte[] r,
int rOffset,
byte[] s,
int sOffset)
Constructs an ECDSASignatureVerifier object using SHA1 for the digest. 


ECDSASignatureVerifier(ECPublicKey key,
Digest digest,
byte[] r,
int rOffset,
byte[] s,
int sOffset)
Constructs an ECDSASignatureVerifier object. 
Method Summary

Digest.getAlgorithm() . 

void 
update(byte[] data)
Adds additional message data to the signature. 

void 
update(byte[] data,
int offset,
int length)
Adds additional message data to the signature. 

void 
update(int data)
Adds additional message data to the signature. 

boolean 
verify()

public ECDSASignatureVerifier(ECPublicKey key, byte[] r, int rOffset, byte[] s, int sOffset) throws CryptoTokenException, CryptoUnsupportedOperationException, InvalidSignatureEncodingException
ECDSASignatureVerifier
object using SHA1 for the digest.
NOTE: Also, if r
and s
point to the same buffer, then it is assumed
that the length of r and the length of s are both exactly the length of the private key.
key
 The public key to use for verification.r
 The r part of the signature to verify. Note that r is an element
of the finite field that the elliptic curve is defined over.rOffset
 The offset, or start position, of the signature data
within the array r.s
 The s part of the signature to verify. Note that s is an element
of the finite field that the elliptic curve is defined over.sOffset
 The offset, or start position, of the signature data
within the array s.
CryptoTokenException
 Thrown if an error occurs with the crypto
token or the crypto token is invalid.
CryptoUnsupportedOperationException
 Thrown if a call is made to
an unsupported operation.
InvalidSignatureEncodingException
public ECDSASignatureVerifier(ECPublicKey key, Digest digest, byte[] r, int rOffset, byte[] s, int sOffset) throws CryptoTokenException, CryptoUnsupportedOperationException, InvalidSignatureEncodingException
ECDSASignatureVerifier
object.
NOTE: If the digest has any state information in it when it is given to the signature verifier, this information will be incorparated into the signature.
NOTE: Also, if r
and s
point to the same buffer, then it is assumed
that the length of r and the length of s are both exactly the length of the private key.
key
 The public key to use for verification.digest
 The digest to use for verification.r
 The r part of the signature to verify. Note that r is an element
of the finite field that the elliptic curve is defined over.rOffset
 The offset, or start position, of the signature data
within the array r.s
 The s part of the signature to verify. Note that s is an element
of the finite field that the elliptic curve is defined over.sOffset
 The offset, or start position, of the signature data within
the array s.
CryptoTokenException
 Thrown if an error occurs with the crypto
token or the crypto token is invalid.
CryptoUnsupportedOperationException
 Thrown if a call is made to
an unsupported operation.
