Interface X509IssuerSerial

  • All Superinterfaces:

    public interface X509IssuerSerial
    extends XMLStructure
    A representation of the XML X509IssuerSerial element as defined in the W3C Recommendation for XML-Signature Syntax and Processing. An X509IssuerSerial object contains an X.509 issuer distinguished name (DN) and serial number pair. The XML schema definition is defined as:
       <element name="X509IssuerSerial" type="ds:X509IssuerSerialType"/>
       <complexType name="X509IssuerSerialType">
           <element name="X509IssuerName" type="string"/>
           <element name="X509SerialNumber" type="integer"/>
    An X509IssuerSerial instance may be created by invoking the newX509IssuerSerial method of the KeyInfoFactory class, and passing it a String and BigInteger representing the X.500 DN and serial number. Here is an example of creating an X509IssuerSerial from the issuer DN and serial number of an existing X509Certificate:
     KeyInfoFactory factory = KeyInfoFactory.getInstance("DOM");
     X509IssuerSerial issuer = factory.newX509IssuerSerial
         (cert.getIssuerX500Principal().getName(), cert.getSerialNumber());
