Member Function Documentation

virtual void GeneratableCryptoMaterial::GenerateRandom ( RandomNumberGenerator rng,
const NameValuePairs params = g_nullNameValuePairs 
) [inline, virtual, inherited]

generate a random key or crypto parameters

KeyingErr if algorithm parameters are invalid, or if a key can't be generated (e.g., if this is a public key object)

Reimplemented in DL_GroupParameters_EC< EC >, InvertibleESIGNFunction, DL_GroupParameters_IntegerBased, DL_GroupParameters_DSA, InvertibleLUCFunction, DL_PrivateKeyImpl< GP >, InvertibleRabinFunction, InvertibleRSAFunction, InvertibleRWFunction, and DL_PrivateKeyImpl< DL_GroupParameters_EC< EC > >.

Definition at line 1107 of file cryptlib.h.

Referenced by GeneratableCryptoMaterial::GenerateRandomWithKeySize().

virtual bool CryptoMaterial::Validate ( RandomNumberGenerator rng,
unsigned int  level 
) const [pure virtual, inherited]

check this object for errors

level denotes the level of thoroughness: 0 - using this object won't cause a crash or exception (rng is ignored) 1 - this object will probably function (encrypt, sign, etc.) correctly (but may not check for weak keys and such) 2 - make sure this object will function correctly, and do reasonable security checks 3 - do checks that may take a long time
true if the tests pass

Implemented in ESIGNFunction, InvertibleESIGNFunction, LUCFunction, InvertibleLUCFunction, DL_GroupParameters< T >, DL_PrivateKeyImpl< GP >, DL_PublicKeyImpl< GP >, RabinFunction, InvertibleRabinFunction, RSAFunction, InvertibleRSAFunction, RWFunction, InvertibleRWFunction, XTR_DH, DL_GroupParameters< Integer >, DL_GroupParameters< typenameEcPrecomputation< EC >::Element >, DL_PrivateKeyImpl< DL_GroupParameters_EC< EC > >, and DL_PublicKeyImpl< DL_GroupParameters_EC< EC > >.

virtual void CryptoMaterial::Load ( BufferedTransformation bt  )  [inline, virtual, inherited]

load key from a BufferedTransformation

KeyingErr if decode fails
Generally does not check that the key is valid. Call ValidateKey() or ThrowIfInvalidKey() to check that.

Reimplemented in InvertibleRSAFunction.

Definition at line 1072 of file cryptlib.h.

virtual bool CryptoMaterial::SupportsPrecomputation (  )  const [inline, virtual, inherited]
virtual void CryptoMaterial::Precompute ( unsigned int  n  )  [inline, virtual, inherited]

do precomputation

The exact semantics of Precompute() is varies, but typically it means calculate a table of n objects that can be used later to speed up computation.

Reimplemented in DL_GroupParameters< T >, DL_PrivateKeyImpl< GP >, DL_PublicKeyImpl< GP >, DL_GroupParameters< Integer >, DL_GroupParameters< typenameEcPrecomputation< EC >::Element >, DL_PrivateKeyImpl< DL_GroupParameters_EC< EC > >, and DL_PublicKeyImpl< DL_GroupParameters_EC< EC > >.

Definition at line 1081 of file cryptlib.h.

bool NameValuePairs::GetIntValue ( const char *  name,
int &  value 
) const [inline, inherited]

get a named value with type int

used to ensure we don't accidentally try to get an unsigned int or some other type when we mean int (which is the most common case)
