Interface SignatureProperty

  • All Superinterfaces:

    public interface SignatureProperty
    extends XMLStructure
    A representation of the XML SignatureProperty element as defined in the W3C Recommendation for XML-Signature Syntax and Processing. The XML Schema Definition is defined as:
    <element name="SignatureProperty" type="ds:SignaturePropertyType"/>
       <complexType name="SignaturePropertyType" mixed="true">
         <choice maxOccurs="unbounded">
           <any namespace="##other" processContents="lax"/>
           <!-- (1,1) elements from (1, unbounded) namespaces -->
         <attribute name="Target" type="anyURI" use="required"/>
         <attribute name="Id" type="ID" use="optional"/>
    A SignatureProperty instance may be created by invoking the newSignatureProperty method of the XMLSignatureFactory class; for example:
       XMLSignatureFactory factory = XMLSignatureFactory.getInstance("DOM");
       SignatureProperty property = factory.newSignatureProperty
          (Collections.singletonList(content), "#Signature-1", "TimeStamp");
    See Also:
    XMLSignatureFactory.newSignatureProperty(List, String, String), SignatureProperties

      • getTarget

        String getTarget()
        Returns the target URI of this SignatureProperty.
        the target URI of this SignatureProperty (never null)
      • getId

        String getId()
        Returns the Id of this SignatureProperty.
        the Id of this SignatureProperty (or null if not specified)
      • getContent

        List<XMLStructure> getContent()
        Returns an unmodifiable list of one or more XMLStructures that are contained in this SignatureProperty. These represent additional information items concerning the generation of the XMLSignature (i.e. date/time stamp or serial numbers of cryptographic hardware used in signature generation).
