Hi,

I have java.security.KeyPairGenerator making RSA KeyPairs for me, but I'm not sure what to do with the encoded data. On my public and private keys I call the getEncoded() method, which returns a binary representation of the key, but how can I turn the binary representation back into a key object? I've been poking around the documentation for about a day without any luck.

Thanks,
Mike

Edit: More generally, if someone knows of a tutorial about working with KeyPairs in java other than the sun standard ones, it would be appreciated. Figuring stuff out from google snippets and API docs isn't exactly fun.

Edit 2: I found an example of getting the key pair back from the encoding here: http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.security/GetKeyPairBytes.html?l=rel
