Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-6728) Review and improve the way EC keys are handled in JOSE code
Date Wed, 30 Dec 2015 13:38:49 GMT
Sergey Beryozkin created CXF-6728:

             Summary: Review and improve the way EC keys are handled in JOSE code
                 Key: CXF-6728
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: JAX-RS Security
            Reporter: Sergey Beryozkin
            Priority: Minor

was meant to be a more optimal version of the code available in Jose4J (which is actually
a slightly improved version of the code found in Santuario plus dealing with JOSE specific
optimizations). This code needs to be double-checked and if needed reverted to a version closer
to the one found in Jose4J.

Curves: it should be possible to deduce the values from the current EC key as opposed to having
users configure them explicitly. 

has just come out, so I guess EC code will need to be updated accordingly.

I also recall that if EC keys are loaded from JKS then the default algorithm needs be set
correctly if EC signature/enc algo is not set, at the moment it is always set to RS256 by
