Name

Interface java.security.cert.X509Extension

Synopsis

The X509Extension interface represents the certificate extensions defined by the X.509v3 standard. Extensions are additional bits of information contained in a certificate. Each extension is designated as critical or non-critical. An application that handles a certificate should either correctly interpret the critical extensions or produce some kind of error if they cannot be recognized.
