Class Oid

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.ietf.jgss.Oid

public class Oid
extends Object

This class represents Universal Object Identifiers (Oids) and their associated operations.

Oids are hierarchically globally-interpretable identifiers used within the GSS-API framework to identify mechanisms and name formats.

The structure and encoding of Oids is defined in ISOIEC-8824 and ISOIEC-8825. For example the Oid representation of Kerberos V5 mechanism is "1.2.840.113554.1.2.2"

The GSSName name class contains public static Oid objects representing the standard name types defined in GSS-API.

Since:
1.4

Constructor Summary
Oid(byte[] data)
          Creates an Oid object from its ASN.1 DER encoding.
Oid(InputStream derOid)
          Creates an Oid object from its ASN.1 DER encoding.
Oid(String strOid)
          Constructs an Oid object from a string representation of its integer components.
 
Method Summary
 boolean containedIn(Oid[] oids)
          A utility method to test if this Oid value is contained within the supplied Oid array.
 boolean equals(Object other)
          Tests if two Oid objects represent the same Object identifier value.
 byte[] getDER()
          Returns the full ASN.1 DER encoding for this oid object, which includes the tag and length.
 int hashCode()
          Returns a hashcode value for this Oid.
 String toString()
          Returns a string representation of the oid's integer components in dot separated notation.

Constructor Detail

Oid

public Oid(String strOid)
    throws GSSException
Constructs an Oid object from a string representation of its integer components.

Parameters:
strOid - the dot separated string representation of the oid. For instance, "1.2.840.113554.1.2.2".
Throws:
GSSException - may be thrown when the string is incorrectly formatted

Oid

public Oid(InputStream derOid)
    throws GSSException
Creates an Oid object from its ASN.1 DER encoding. This refers to the full encoding including tag and length. The structure and encoding of Oids is defined in ISOIEC-8824 and ISOIEC-8825. This method is identical in functionality to its byte array counterpart.

Parameters:
derOid - stream containing the DER encoded oid
Throws:
GSSException - may be thrown when the DER encoding does not follow the prescribed format.

Oid

public Oid(byte[] data)
    throws GSSException
Creates an Oid object from its ASN.1 DER encoding. This refers to the full encoding including tag and length. The structure and encoding of Oids is defined in ISOIEC-8824 and ISOIEC-8825. This method is identical in functionality to its InputStream conterpart.

Parameters:
data - byte array containing the DER encoded oid
Throws:
GSSException - may be thrown when the DER encoding does not follow the prescribed format.
Method Detail

toString

public String toString()
Returns a string representation of the oid's integer components in dot separated notation.

Overrides:
toString in class Object
Returns:
string representation in the following format: "1.2.3.4.5"

equals

public boolean equals(Object other)
Tests if two Oid objects represent the same Object identifier value.

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
other - the Oid object that has to be compared to this one
Returns:
true if the two Oid objects represent the same value, false otherwise.

Object.hashCode(), Hashtable

getDER

public byte[] getDER()
              throws GSSException
Returns the full ASN.1 DER encoding for this oid object, which includes the tag and length.

Returns:
byte array containing the DER encoding of this oid object.
Throws:
GSSException - may be thrown when the oid can't be encoded

containedIn

public boolean containedIn(Oid[] oids)
A utility method to test if this Oid value is contained within the supplied Oid array.

Parameters:
oids - the array of Oid's to search
Returns:
true if the array contains this Oid value, false otherwise

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns a hashcode value for this Oid.

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
a hashCode value
See Also:
Object.equals(java.lang.Object), Hashtable
