The Java KeyGenerator class (javax.crypto.KeyGenerator) is used to generate symmetric encryption keys. A symmetric encryption key is a key that is used for both encryption and decryption of data, by a symmetric encryption algorithm. In this Java KeyGenerator tutorial I will show you how to generate symmetric encryption keys.

Creating a KeyGenerator Instance

Before you can use the Java KeyGenerator class you must create a KeyGenerator instance. You create a KeyGenerator instance by calling the static method getInstance() passing as parameter the name of the encryption algorithm to create a key for. Here is an example of creating a Java KeyGenerator instance:

This example creates a KeyGenerator instance which can generate keys for the AES encryption algorithm.

Initializing the KeyGenerator

Mar 12, 2020  Use the OpenSSL command-line tool, which is included with InfoSphere MDM, to generate AES 128-, 192-, or 256-bit keys. The madpwd3 utility is used to create the password. Feb 01, 2001  The 128-bit version of WLS contains a Certificate servlet that is able to generate keys and Certificate Signing Requests for 128/1024-bit SSL certificates. + Mikael 'Wolfgang Mehl' wrote: BEA at least in Germany is not able to devliver a certificate Servlet to generate 1024 bit keys, so use.

After creating the KeyGenerator instance you must initialize it. Initializing a KeyGenerator instance is done by calling its init() method. Here is an example of initializing a KeyGenerator instance:

The KeyGeneratorinit() method takes two parameters: The bit size of the keys to generate, and a SecureRandom that is used during key generation.

Generating a Key

Once the Java KeyGenerator instance is initialized you can use it to generate keys. Generating a key is done by calling the KeyGeneratorgenerateKey() method. Here is an example of generating a symmetric key:
