Note that these interfaces are intended only for key implementations whose key material is accessible and available. These interfaces are not intended for key implementations whose key material resides in inaccessible, protected storage (such as in a hardware device).
For more developer information on how to use these
interfaces, including information on how to design
Key classes for hardware devices, please refer
to these cryptographic provider developer guides:
The interface to a DSA public or private key.
An interface to an object capable of generating DSA key pairs.
Interface to a DSA-specific set of key parameters, which defines a DSA key family.
The standard interface to a DSA private key.
The interface to a DSA public key.
The interface to an elliptic curve (EC) key.
The interface to an elliptic curve (EC) private key.
