/**
 * This class defines the <i>Service Provider Interface</i> (<b>SPI</b>)
 * for the <code>SecretKeyFactory</code> class.
 * All the abstract methods in this class must be implemented by each 
 * cryptographic service provider who wishes to supply the implementation
 * of a secret-key factory for a particular algorithm.
 * <p>
 * A provider should document all the key specifications supported by its
 * secret key factory.
 * For example, the DES secret-key factory supplied by the "SunJCE" provider
 * supports <code>DESKeySpec</code> as a transparent representation of DES
 * keys, and that provider's secret-key factory for Triple DES keys supports
 * <code>DESedeKeySpec</code> as a transparent representation of Triple DES
 * keys.
