Subject [jira] [Commented] (WSS-532) Minor Change to User's Guide
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:47:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WSS-532?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14495866#comment-14495866

Colm O hEigeartaigh commented on WSS-532:
-----------------------------------------

No, I think "decrypt" is correct. The private key is stored encrypted in the keystore. So
the purpose of the password retrieved from the CallbackHandler is to decrypt the private key
stored in the keystore, so that it can be used for signature.

Colm.

> The the description of CallbackHandler in the _Using WSS4J_ section of the User's Guide
says "to *decrypt* a private key from a keystore for Signature". I think it should say *encrypt*
instead.
