Interface AlgorithmNameFinder

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultAlgorithmNameFinder

public interface AlgorithmNameFinder

General finder for converting OIDs and AlgorithmIdentifiers into strings.


Method Summary
 java.lang.String getAlgorithmName(org.bouncycastle.asn1.x509.AlgorithmIdentifier algorithmIdentifier)
          Return a string representation of the passed in AlgorithmIdentifier, based on the OID in the AlgorithmField, with the parameters included where appropriate.
 java.lang.String getAlgorithmName(org.bouncycastle.asn1.ASN1ObjectIdentifier objectIdentifier)
          Return a string representation of the passed in objectIdentifier.
 boolean hasAlgorithmName(org.bouncycastle.asn1.ASN1ObjectIdentifier objectIdentifier)
          Return true if the passed in objectIdentifier has a "human friendly" name associated with it.
 

Method Detail

hasAlgorithmName

public boolean hasAlgorithmName(org.bouncycastle.asn1.ASN1ObjectIdentifier objectIdentifier)
Return true if the passed in objectIdentifier has a "human friendly" name associated with it.

Parameters:
objectIdentifier - the OID of interest.
Returns:
true if a name lookup exists for the OID, false otherwise.

getAlgorithmName

public java.lang.String getAlgorithmName(org.bouncycastle.asn1.ASN1ObjectIdentifier objectIdentifier)
Return a string representation of the passed in objectIdentifier.

Parameters:
objectIdentifier - the OID of interest.
Returns:
a "human friendly" representation of the OID, the OID as a string if none available.

getAlgorithmName

public java.lang.String getAlgorithmName(org.bouncycastle.asn1.x509.AlgorithmIdentifier algorithmIdentifier)
Return a string representation of the passed in AlgorithmIdentifier, based on the OID in the AlgorithmField, with the parameters included where appropriate.

Parameters:
algorithmIdentifier - the AlgorithmIdentifier of interest.
Returns:
a "human friendly" representation of the algorithmIdentifier, the identifiers OID as a string if none available.
