Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-629) [classlib][security] Passing invalid DSA spec size does not throw exception
Date Wed, 28 Jun 2006 05:35:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-629?page=comments#action_12418174 ] 

Stepan Mishura commented on HARMONY-629:

AlgorithmParameterGenerator is not aware which key size is valid for an algorithm. A DSA key
size may be multiple of 64 but it possible that it is not supported by an algorithm's provider.
So AlgorithmParameterGenerator only passes key size to an algorithm's provider and lets the
provider to decide whether the key size is valid or not. 

In our case it is up to BC provider whether to reject or not the provided key size.
