getTokenSizeEstimate

int getTokenSizeEstimate()
Get the time stamp token size estimate. Implementation must return value large enough to accomodate the entire token returned by getTimeStampToken() _prior_ to actual getTimeStampToken() call.

Returns:
an estimate of the token size

getTimeStampToken

byte[] getTimeStampToken(PdfPKCS7 caller,
                         byte[] imprint)
                         throws java.lang.Exception
