Table compares implementations of block ciphers. Block ciphers are defined as being deterministic and operating on a set number of bits termed a block using a symmetric key. Each block cipher can be broken up into the possible key sizes and block cipher modes it can be run with. The table below shows the support of various stream ciphers. Stream ciphers are defined as using plain text digits that are combined with a pseudorandom cipher digit stream.
Stream ciphers are typically faster than block ciphers and may have lower hardware complexity, but may be more susceptible to attacks. These tables compare the ability to utilize hardware enhanced cryptography. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Other functions, like AES acceleration, are not provided.

You should put the full link for the install page. The following is an example of how to use a SecretKeyFactory to convert secret key data into a SecretKey object, which can be used for a subsequent Cipher operation:.
In this case, the underlying implementation of secretKey is based on the provider of keyFactory. An alternative, provider-independent way of creating a functionally equivalent SecretKey object from the same key material is to use the javax. SecretKeySpec class, which implements the javax. SecretKey interface:. This class enables a programmer to create an object and protect its confidentiality with a cryptographic algorithm.
Given any object that implements the java. Serializable interface, one can create a SealedObject that encapsulates the original object, in serialized format i. The encrypted content can later be decrypted with the corresponding algorithm using the correct decryption key and de-serialized, yielding the original object. A typical usage is illustrated in the following code segment: In order to seal an object, you create a SealedObject from the object to be sealed and a fully initialized Cipher object that will encrypt the serialized object contents.
Note that any algorithm parameters that may be used in the sealing operation are stored inside of SealedObject :. This approach has the advantage that the party who unseals the sealed object does not require knowledge of the decryption key. For example, after one party has initialized the cipher object with the required decryption key, it could hand over the cipher object to another party who then unseals the sealed object.
In this approach, the getObject method creates a cipher object for the appropriate decryption algorithm and initializes it with the given decryption key and the algorithm parameters if any that were stored in the sealed object.
This approach has the advantage that the party who unseals the object does not need to keep track of the parameters e. The KeyAgreement class provides the functionality of a key agreement protocol. The keys involved in establishing a shared secret are created by one of the key generators KeyPairGenerator or KeyGenerator , a KeyFactory , or as a result from an intermediate phase of the key agreement protocol.
Each party involved in the key agreement has to create a KeyAgreement object. A factory method is a static method that returns an instance of a class, in this case, an instance of KeyAgreement which provides the requested key agreement algorithm. If just an algorithm name is specified, the system will determine if there is an implementation of the requested key agreement available in the environment, and if there is more than one, if there is a preferred one.
If both an algorithm name and a package provider are specified, the system will determine if there is an implementation of the requested key agreement in the package requested, and throw an exception if there is not. You initialize a KeyAgreement object with your private information. In the case of Diffie-Hellman, you initialize it with your Diffie-Hellman private key. Note that if the requested key agreement algorithm requires the specification of algorithm parameters, and only a key, but no parameters are provided to initialize the KeyAgreement object, the key must contain the required algorithm parameters.
For example, the Diffie-Hellman algorithm uses a prime modulus p and a base generator g as its parameters. Every key agreement protocol consists of a number of phases that need to be executed by each party involved in the key agreement. The key parameter contains the key to be processed by that phase.
In most cases, this is the public key of one of the other parties involved in the key agreement, or an intermediate key that was generated by a previous phase. The lastPhase parameter specifies whether or not the phase to be executed is the last one in the key agreeement: A value of FALSE indicates that this is not the last phase of the key agreement there are more phases to follow , and a value of TRUE indicates that this is the last phase of the key agreement and the key agreement is completed, i.
After each party has executed all the required key agreement phases, it can compute the shared secret by calling one of the generateSecret methods:. Please refer to the code example in Appendix F. A factory method is a static method that returns an instance of a class, in this case, an instance of Mac which provides the requested MAC algorithm.
If just an algorithm name is specified, the system will determine if there is an implementation of the requested MAC algorithm available in the environment, and if there is more than one, if there is a preferred one. If both an algorithm name and a package provider are specified, the system will determine if there is an implementation of the requested MAC algorithm in the package requested, and throw an exception if there is not.
A Mac object is always initialized with a secret key and may optionally be initialized with a set of parameters, depending on the underlying MAC algorithm. You can initialize your Mac object with any secret- key object that implements the javax. SecretKey interface. This could be an object returned by javax. With others, however, the secret- key algorithm does matter, and an InvalidKeyException is thrown if a secret- key object with an inappropriate secret- key algorithm is used. A MAC can be computed in one step single-part operation or in multiple steps multiple-part operation.
To compute the MAC of some data in a single step, call the following doFinal method:. A multiple-part operation must be terminated by the above doFinal method if there is still some input data left for the last step , or by one of the following doFinal methods if there is no input data left for the last step :. Any such restrictions are specified in "jurisdiction policy files". Due to import control restrictions by the governments of a few countries, the jurisdiction policy files shipped with the JDK 5.
An "unlimited strength" version of these files indicating no restrictions on cryptographic strengths is available for those living in eligible countries which is most countries. But only the "strong" version can be imported into those countries whose governments mandate restrictions. The JCE framework will enforce the restrictions specified in the installed jurisdiction policy files. It is possible that the governments of some or all such countries may allow certain applications to become exempt from some or all cryptographic restrictions.
For example, they may consider certain types of applications as "special" and thus exempt. Or they may exempt any application that utilizes an "exemption mechanism," such as key recovery. Applications deemed to be exempt could get access to stronger cryptography than that allowed for non-exempt applications in such countries.
In order for an application to be recognized as "exempt" at runtime, it must meet the following conditions:. Below are sample steps required in order to make an application exempt from some or all cryptographic restrictions. This is a basic outline that includes information about what is required by JCE in order to recognize and treat applications as being exempt. You will need to know the exemption requirements of the particular country or countries in which you would like your application to be able to be run but whose governments require cryptographic restrictions.
You will also need to know the requirements of a JCE framework vendor that has a process in place for handling exempt applications. Consult such a vendor for further information. When an application has a permission policy file associated with it in the same JAR file and that permission policy file specifies an exemption mechanism, then when the Cipher getInstance method is called to instantiate a Cipher, the JCE code searches the installed providers for one that implements the specified exemption mechanism.
After instantiating a Cipher, and prior to initializing it via a call to the Cipher init method , your code must call the following Cipher method:. This call returns the ExemptionMechanism object associated with the Cipher. You must then initialize the exemption mechanism implementation by calling the following method on the returned ExemptionMechanism:. The argument you supply should be the same as the argument of the same types that you will subsequently supply to a Cipher init method. Once you have initialized the ExemptionMechanism, you can proceed as usual to initialize and use the Cipher.
In order for an application to be recognized at runtime as being "exempt" from some or all cryptographic restrictions, it must have a permission policy file bundled with it in a JAR file. The permission policy file specifies what cryptography-related permissions the application has, and under what conditions if any. Note: The permission policy file bundled with an application must be named cryptoPerms.
The format of a permission entry in a permission policy file that accompanies an exempt application is the same as the format for a jurisdiction policy file downloaded with the JDK 5. See Appendix D for more information about the jurisdiction policy file format. Some applications may be allowed to be completely unrestricted. Thus, the permission policy file that accompanies such an application usually just needs to contain the following:. If an application just uses a single algorithm or several specific algorithms , then the permission policy file could simply mention that algorithm or algorithms explicitly, rather than granting CryptoAllPermission.
For example, if an application just uses the Blowfish algorithm, the permission policy file doesn't have to grant CryptoAllPermission to all algorithms. It could just specify that there is no cryptographic restriction if the Blowfish algorithm is used. In order to do this, the permission policy file would look like the following:. If an application is considered "exempt" if an exemption mechanism is enforced, then the permission policy file that accompanies the application must specify one or more exemption mechanisms.
At runtime, the application will be considered exempt if any of those exemption mechanisms is enforced. Each exemption mechanism must be specified in a permission entry that looks like the following:. The list of possible exemption mechanism names includes:. Note: Permission entries that specify exemption mechanisms should not also specify maximum key sizes. The allowed key sizes are actually determined from the installed exempt jurisdiction policy files, as described in the next section.
At runtime, when an application instantiates a Cipher via a call to its getInstance method and that application has an associated permission policy file, JCE checks to see whether the permission policy file has an entry that applies to the algorithm specified in the getInstance call. If it does, and the entry grants CryptoAllPermission or does not specify that an exemption mechanism must be enforced, it means there is no cryptographic restriction for this particular algorithm.
If the permission policy file has an entry that applies to the algorithm specified in the getInstance call and the entry does specify that an exemption mechanism must be enforced, then the exempt jurisdiction policy file s are examined. If the exempt permissions include an entry for the relevant algorithm and exemption mechanism, and that entry is implied by the permissions in the permission policy file bundled with the application, and if there is an implementation of the specified exemption mechanism available from one of the registered providers, then the maximum key size and algorithm parameter values for the Cipher are determined from the exempt permission entry.
If there is no exempt permission entry implied by the relevant entry in the permission policy file bundled with the application, or if there is no implementation of the specified exemption mechanism available from any of the registered providers, then the application is only allowed the standard default cryptographic permissions.
In order to be used, a cryptographic provider must be installed and registered, either statically or dynamically. You do not need to register the "SunJCE" provider because it is pre-registered. If you want to use other providers, read the following sections to see how to register them. Installing a provider is done in two steps: installing the provider package classes , and configuring the provider.
In some situations you will also need to set permissions for the provider prior to using it. The provider JAR file will be considered an installed extension if it is placed in the standard place for the JAR files of an installed extension:. For example, if you have JDK 5. Similarly, if you have the JRE 5. For more information, refer to these sections in the "Extension Mechanism Architecture" specification: Installed Extensions and Bundled Extensions. The next step is to add the provider to your list of approved providers.
This is done statically by editing the security properties file. Similarly, if you have the Java 2 Runtime Environment, v 1. This declares a provider, and specifies its preference order n. The preference order is the order in which providers are searched for requested algorithms when no specific provider is requested. The order is 1-based; 1 is the most preferred, followed by 2, and so on.
The provider vendor should supply you this name. JDK 5. The "SUN" provider's master class is the Sun class in the sun. To utilize another JCE provider, add a line registering the alternate provider, giving it whatever preference order you prefer and making corresponding adjustments to the other providers' orders, if needed.
Suppose that the master class of a provider you want to register is the CryptoX class in the com. To do so, add the following line to the java. Whenever JCE providers are not installed extensions, permissions must be granted for when applets or applications using JCE are run while a security manager is installed. There is typically a security manager installed whenever an applet is running, and a security manager may be installed for an application either via code in the application itself or via a command-line argument.
Permissions do not need to be granted to installed extensions, since the default system policy configuration file grants all permissions to installed extensions. The documentation from the vendor of each provider you will be using should include information as to which permissions it requires, and how to grant such permissions.
For example, the following permissions may be needed by a provider if it is not an installed extension and a security manager is installed:. Such a statement could appear in a policy file. The "SunJCE" provider supplies its own implementation of the java. KeyStore class in the JDK 5. Its implementation employs a much stronger protection of private keys using password-based encryption with Triple DES than the keystore implementation supplied by the "SUN" provider in the JDK 5.
To apply the cryptographically strong er key protection supplied by "SunJCE" to a private key named "signkey" in your default keystore, use the following command, which will prompt you for the old and new key passwords:. See Security Tools for more information about keytool and about keystores and how they are managed. This section takes the user through the process of generating a key, creating and initializing a cipher object, encrypting a file, and then decrypting it.
We do not specify a provider, because we do not care about a particular DES key generation implementation. Since we do not initialize the KeyGenerator, a system-provided source of randomness will be used to create the DES key:. After the key has been generated, the same KeyGenerator object can be re-used to create further keys.
The next step is to create a Cipher instance. To do this, we use one of the getInstance factory methods of the Cipher class. We do not specify a provider, because we do not care about a particular implementation of the requested transformation. We use the generated desKey from above to initialize the Cipher object for encryption:. It would seem logical to collect and store the password in an object of type java.
However, here's the caveat: Objects of type String are immutable, i. This feature makes String objects unsuitable for storing security sensitive information such as user passwords. You should always collect and store security sensitive information in a char array instead.
For that reason, the javax. PBEKeySpec class takes and returns a password as a char array. The same salt and iteration count that are used for encryption must be used for decryption:. Please refer to Appendix F for sample programs exercising the Diffie-Hellman key exchange between 2 and 3 parties, respectively.
This specification establishes the following names as standard names. Note that algorithm names are treated case-insensitively. In some cases naming conventions are suggested for forming names that are not explicitly listed, to facilitate name consistency across provider implementations.
The following names can be specified as the algorithm component in a transformation when requesting an instance of Cipher :. The following names can be specified as the mode component in a transformation when requesting an instance of Cipher :. The following names can be specified as the padding component in a transformation when requesting an instance of Cipher :.
The size of an instance of a GenericBlockCipher must be a multiple of the block cipher's block length. The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of KeyAgreement :. The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of KeyGenerator :. The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of KeyPairGenerator :.
The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of SecretKeyFactory :. The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of KeyFactory :. The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of AlgorithmParameterGenerator :. The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of AlgorithmParameters :.
The following algorithm names can be specified when requesting an instance of Mac :. The following types can be specified when requesting an instance of KeyStore :. The following exemption mechanism names can be specified in the permission policy file that accompanies an application considered "exempt" from cryptographic restrictions:. The SunJCE provider enforces the following restrictions on the keysize passed to the initialization methods of the following classes:.
JCE represents its jurisdiction policy files as J2SE-style policy files with corresponding permission statements. A permission represents access to a system resource. In the case of JCE, the "resources" are cryptography algorithms, and code sources do not need to be specified, because the cryptographic restrictions apply to all code.
A jurisdiction policy file consists of a very basic "grant entry" containing one or more "permission entries. A sample jurisdiction policy file that includes restricting the "Blowfish" algorithm to maximum key sizes of 64 bits is:.
