/**
 * The KeyPairGenerator class is used to generate pairs of
 * public and private keys. Key generators are constructed using the
 * <code>getInstance</code> factory methods (static methods that
 * return instances of a given class).
 * 
 * <p>Key generation is an area that sometimes
 * does not lend itself well to algorithm independence. For example,
 * it is possible to generate a DSA key pair specifying key family
 * parameters (p, q and g), while it is not possible to do so for
 * an RSA key pair. That is, those parameters are applicable to DSA
 * but not to RSA.
 * 
 * <P>There are therefore two ways to generate a key pair: in an 
 * algorithm-independent
 * manner, and in an algorithm-specific manner. The only difference
 * between the two is the initialization of the object. 
 * 
 * <p>All key pair generators share the concepts of a "strength" and a
 * source of randomness. The measure of strength is universally shared 
 * by all algorithms,
 * though it is interpreted differently for different algorithms.
 * The <a href = "#initialize ">initialize</a> method in this 
 * KeyPairGenerator class 
 * takes these two universally shared
 * types of arguments. 
 * 
 * <p>Since no other parameters are specified when you call this
 * algorithm-independent <code>initialize</code>
 * method, all other values, such as algorithm parameters, public
 * exponent, etc., are defaulted to standard values. 
 * 
 * <P>
 * It is sometimes desirable to initialize a key pair generator object
 * using algorithm-specific semantics. For example, you may want to
 * initialize a DSA key generator for a given set of parameters 
 * <code>p</code>, <code>q</code> and <code>g</code>,
 * or an RSA key generator for a given public exponent.
 * 
 * <P>
 * This is done through algorithm-specific standard interfaces. Rather than
 * calling the algorithm-independent KeyPairGenerator <code>initialize</code>
 * method, the key pair generator is cast to an algorithm-specific interface 
 * so that one of its specialized parameter initialization methods can be
 * called. An example is the DSAKeyPairGenerator interface (from
 * <code>java.security.interfaces</code>).
 * 
 *  <p>See <a href =
 * "../guide/security/CryptoSpec.html#KPG">The KeyPairGenerator Class</a> 
 * in the "Java Cryptography Architecture API Specification &amp; Reference"
 * for more information and examples.
