Example of DSA Key Parameters and Properties

This section provides 2 DsaKeyChecker.java output examples to show DSA key parameters and properties.

Let's compile and run DsaKeyChecker.java using JDK 1.6 on my first DSA key pair, dsa_512.pub and dsa_512.pri, generated in the previous tutorial:

C:\herong>javac DsaKeyChecker.java

C:\herong>java DsaKeyChecker dsa_512

DSA Key Parameters:
p = 13232376895198612407547930718267435757728527029623408872245156039

q = 857393771208094202104259627990318636601332086981
g = 54216440574364751416096484883257051280474283943804743768346673007

x = 792647853324835944125296675259316105451780620466
y = 10783827985936883407800478884376885258012329124816552994400318669

403593803159583034340

DSA Key Verification:
What's key size? 512
Is p a prime? true
Is q a prime? true
Is p-1 mod q == 0? 0
Is g**q mod p == 1? 1
Is q > x? true
Is g**x mod p == y? true

The output looks good. The key size is 512 bits, measured by the number of bits of the prime modulus "p".

Below the output on my second DSA key pair, dsa_1024.pub and dsa_1024.pri:

C:\herong>java DsaKeyChecker dsa_1024

DSA Key Parameters:
