Subject [jira] [Created] (WSS-406) Add the ability to define which algorithms are acceptable when processing a security header

---------------------------------------

             Summary: Add the ability to define which algorithms are acceptable when processing
a security header
                 Key: WSS-406
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WSS-406
             Project: WSS4J
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.6.7
            Reporter: Colm O hEigeartaigh
            Assignee: Colm O hEigeartaigh
             Fix For: 1.6.8



This task is to add the ability to define which algorithms are acceptable when processing
a security header. In WS-SecurityPolicy, you can define an "AlgorithmSuite" (e.g. sp:Basic128)
which describes which algorithms must be used. Currently there is no way to enforce this in
WSS4J.

An AlgorithmSuite class will be added to WSS4J, which a third party library can populate.
This will hold acceptable values for things like signature method, digest, c14n algorithms
etc., as well as key sizes, and encryption symmetric and key wrapping algorithms etc. If WSS4J
encounters an Element that does not match one of these values then an exception is thrown.
