Class KerberosKey

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Key, SecretKey, Destroyable

    public class KerberosKey
    extends Object
    implements SecretKey, Destroyable
    This class encapsulates a long term secret key for a Kerberos principal.

    All Kerberos JAAS login modules that obtain a principal's password and generate the secret key from it should use this class. Sometimes, such as when authenticating a server in the absence of user-to-user authentication, the login module will store an instance of this class in the private credential set of a Subject during the commit phase of the authentication process.

    A Kerberos service using a keytab to read secret keys should use the KeyTab class, where latest keys can be read when needed.

    It might be necessary for the application to be granted a PrivateCredentialPermission if it needs to access the KerberosKey instance from a Subject. This permission is not needed when the application depends on the default JGSS Kerberos mechanism to access the KerberosKey. In that case, however, the application will need an appropriate ServicePermission.

      • KerberosKey

        public KerberosKey(KerberosPrincipal principal,
                           byte[] keyBytes,
                           int keyType,
                           int versionNum)
        Constructs a KerberosKey from the given bytes when the key type and key version number are known. This can be used when reading the secret key information from a Kerberos "keytab".
        principal - the principal that this secret key belongs to
        keyBytes - the raw bytes for the secret key
        keyType - the key type for the secret key as defined by the Kerberos protocol specification.
        versionNum - the version number of this secret key
      • KerberosKey

        public KerberosKey(KerberosPrincipal principal,
                           char[] password,
                           String algorithm)
        Constructs a KerberosKey from a principal's password.
        principal - the principal that this password belongs to
        password - the password that should be used to compute the key
        algorithm - the name for the algorithm that this key will be used for. This parameter may be null in which case the default algorithm "DES" will be assumed.
        IllegalArgumentException - if the name of the algorithm passed is unsupported.
    • Method Detail

      • getPrincipal

        public final KerberosPrincipal getPrincipal()
        Returns the principal that this key belongs to.
        the principal this key belongs to.
      • getVersionNumber

        public final int getVersionNumber()
        Returns the key version number.
        the key version number.
      • getKeyType

        public final int getKeyType()
        Returns the key type for this long-term key.
        the key type.
      • getFormat

        public final String getFormat()
        Returns the name of the encoding format for this secret key.
        Specified by:
        getFormat in interface Key
        the String "RAW"
      • getEncoded

        public final byte[] getEncoded()
        Returns the key material of this secret key.
        Specified by:
        getEncoded in interface Key
        the key material
      • isDestroyed

        public boolean isDestroyed()
        Determines if this key has been destroyed.
        Specified by:
        isDestroyed in interface Destroyable
        true if this Object has been destroyed, false otherwise.
      • toString

        public String toString()
        Description copied from class: Object
        Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

        The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:

         getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
        toString in class Object
        a string representation of the object.
      • equals

        public boolean equals(Object other)
        Compares the specified Object with this KerberosKey for equality. Returns true if the given object is also a KerberosKey and the two KerberosKey instances are equivalent.
        equals in class Object
        other - the Object to compare to
        true if the specified object is equal to this KerberosKey, false otherwise. NOTE: Returns false if either of the KerberosKey objects has been destroyed.
