Interface NoninterProtocolClient

All Superinterfaces:
InterProtocolClient
All Known Subinterfaces:
NoninterKeyExClient

public interface NoninterProtocolClient
extends InterProtocolClient

This interface is implemented by classes for the client portion of a non-interactive protocol.

In this context, the party which initiates the protocol is considered the client. Non-interactive means that the client does not need to recieve any information from the server, so the protocol can be used off-line.

A non-interactive protocol can of course also be used on-line and is therefore also considered an Interactive protocol. This is why the NoninterProtocol interfaces extend the InterProtocol interfaces.
