Hi,

I am trying to store PrivateKey and PublicKey objects in a MySQL database. From an example in another post here at the forum:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/134195/Security/store-PublicKey-PrivateKey-database

The code example from that posts are:

Use the getEncoded() method to get the byte[] from the keys. To go the other way, getting an RSAPublicKey or RSAPrivateKey from a byte[], use the appropriate KeyFactory methods and encoded key specs, e.g. for RSAPrivateKey



and for RSAPublicKey


I succeed in storing and retreiving the private key as in the first example. But when I try the public key conversion from byte array to a PublicKey object I get the following exception:



Somebody have a clue why the PublicKey example does not work?

Best regards

Lasse

I cannot be sure without looking at the file in question. I would have to guess that the encoded public key is not in the correct format or has simply been retrieved incorrectly.
