SecureBlackbox 16: Plugging SecureBlackbox Java Cryptography Extensions into Your Java Project

Note: This article applies only to SecureBlackbox Legacy. For future development please consider using the latest version.

The Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) provides a framework and implementations for encryption, key generation, key agreement, and Message Authentication Code (MAC) algorithms. The JCE uses a provider-based architecture and contains a set of APIs for various purposes. These APIs provide easy ways for developers to integrate security into application code.

SecureBlackbox includes its own JCE crypto provider. It simplifies access to SecureBlackbox cryptographic algorithms without a need to switch from a familiar Java API.
