i am doing a project in which i simulate symmetric encryption in routers.so hav to store secret keys for mac encryption in a symmetric matrix.how do i do it?????????should i convert them to strings and then store strings in a matrix???????

URGENT HELP NEEDED!!!!!!!!!

There is too much jargon in your question and not enough java.
A lot depends on how you want to access the stored data and what you want to do with it while it is stored.

Can you explain what your problem is?
Is it a logic problem with controlling the indexes for the contents of a two dimensional array?
How do you determine the indexes you want to store the data at?

okay,there is a SecretKey class in javax.crypto,i want to store a 2-D array of such keys,
like i want to declare "SecretKey key[8][8]" so that key[j]=key[j] therefore the key between router-i and router-j is the same and i can perform symmetric encryption.

lets say i hav a list of routers from 0 to 7(8 routers),in a 2-D array of size 8X8 i store SecretKey's.I use symmetric encripton so if i am sending a packet from router-i to router-j at router-i i use secretkey[j] to perform encryption at router-j i perform decryption by using secretkey[j].

i want to know how to store keys in an array

Anyway may hav solved it,than for ur interest though :)

i meant thanks for your interest

Please mark this thread as solved.
