        Constructs the service with the required services and configuration.
        aNamespace - The name space to which this service belongs
        aEncryptionServer - The server to which the service is being "connected"
        aCipherVersionGenerator - The generator to be used for generating CipherVersion instances.
    • Method Detail

      • next

        public CipherVersion next​()
        Generator method to be implemented by subclasses. Required to create implementation dependent cipher version objects. Retrieves the next valid cipher which may be used for encrypting data.
        Specified by:
        next in interface CipherVersionGenerator<CipherVersion>
        Specified by:
        next in interface org.refcodes.generator.Generator<CipherVersion>
        Specified by:
        next in interface java.util.Iterator<CipherVersion>
        The next valid CipherVersion for encryption.
      • hasNext

        public boolean hasNext​()
        Specified by:
        hasNext in interface org.refcodes.generator.Generator<CipherVersion>
        Specified by:
        hasNext in interface java.util.Iterator<CipherVersion>
      • remove

        public void remove​()
        Specified by:
        remove in interface java.util.Iterator<CipherVersion>
      • toEncryptedCipherVersion

        protected abstract <CV extends CipherVersion> CV toEncryptedCipherVersion​(CV aDecyrptedCipherVersion)
        Hook factory method to be implemented by subclasses. The provided cipher is to be encrypted (e.g. with the public key of an asymmetric encryption approach) so that an Encryption-Server only receives encrypted data.
        Type Parameters:
        CV - The type of the CipherVersion to be used.
        aDecyrptedCipherVersion - The CipherVersion to be encrypted.
        The encrypted CipherVersion.
