Great book with 2 questions
hello Mr Hook,
I am Nigel from Asia,hope u will understand my english.
I am a starter in Java and Cryptography
and this book helps me a lot.
this book is really great.
and after reading the whole book,
I have two questions hope u can give me some advices or idea.
the first one is,
i am using eclipse with JDK1.6
For those method which return the X509Certificate in your book, eclipse shows that the return certGen.generateX509Certificate()is Deprecated.
so can i just use generate() to replace those deprecated generateX509Certificate()?
is there anything need to adjust after replacing that method ?
the second one is ,
there are three entity in my system,
1.Server <--internet--> 2.PC <--bluetooth(byte)--> 3.device,
the secure connection between the 1 and 2 can simply be done after implement the SSL which taught in Ch10.
But the problem is 2 and 3, since socket connection does not exist here,
if i want to upgrade the connection of 2 and 3 to the SSL level,
is there any API ? is there any possible ways to convert ?
or the only way is that I have to try my best to implement the idea of this whole book,
and build the security level that I want
(negotiation + Asym. + sym. + MAC +certicate) by myself ?
I really cant find any useful idea even i google the keyword"bluetooth cryptography"
most of them is just simply symmetry cryptography, and it is not enough for me.
Really thanks for reading this, hope that i can hear from u soon. I would like to thank you one more time, since ur book teach me alot.THANK YOU!
