Interface KeyName

All Superinterfaces:

public interface KeyName
extends XMLStructure

A representation of the XML KeyName element as defined in the W3C Recommendation for XML-Signature Syntax and Processing. A KeyName object contains a string value which may be used by the signer to communicate a key identifier to the recipient. The XML Schema Definition is defined as:

 <element name="KeyName" type="string"/>
A KeyName instance may be created by invoking the newKeyName method of the KeyInfoFactory class, and passing it a String representing the name of the key; for example:
 KeyInfoFactory factory = KeyInfoFactory.getInstance("DOM");
 KeyName keyName = factory.newKeyName("Alice");
