Class AlgorithmParameterGeneratorSpi


public abstract class AlgorithmParameterGeneratorSpi
extends Object
This class defines the Service Provider Interface (SPI) for the AlgorithmParameterGenerator class, which is used to generate a set of parameters to be used with a certain algorithm.

All the abstract methods in this class must be implemented by each cryptographic service provider who wishes to supply the implementation of a parameter generator for a particular algorithm.

In case the client does not explicitly initialize the AlgorithmParameterGenerator (via a call to an engineInit method), each provider must supply (and document) a default initialization. See the Keysize Restriction sections of the JDK Providers document for information on the AlgorithmParameterGenerator defaults used by JDK providers. However, note that defaults may vary across different providers. Additionally, the default value for a provider may change in a future version. Therefore, it is recommended to explicitly initialize the AlgorithmParameterGenerator instead of relying on provider-specific defaults.
