public interface SecretKey extends Key
Provider implementations of this interface must overwrite the
hashCode methods inherited from
Object, so that secret keys are compared based on
their underlying key material and not based on reference.
Keys that implement this interface return the string
as their encoding format (see
getFormat), and return the
raw key bytes as the result of a
getEncoded method call. (The
getEncoded methods are inherited
Key parent interface.)
