Class KeyPair


public class KeyPair
extends Crypto

This class is a simple holder for a pair of public/private keys. Some encryption algorithms only use a single key, in which case the public and private fields of a KeyPair may reference the same object. Either the public or private fields may be null if the corresponding key is unknown.
