How to convert Sign Authority Tool public key into byte array ?

Hi to all.

I want to secure my library by using Sign Authority Tool.

I wanna use something like :


CodeSigningKey csk = CodeSigningKey.getPublicKey();
byte[] pubkey = csk.getPublicKey();
return Arrays.equals(pubkey, Sign_Authority_Tool_Public_Key);



inside the app to check if the lib wasn't sign by using different sign authority tool key.


My problem is how I can convert the folowing sign authority public key:

AA3EFBB7 80B39511 1E65D3FA 8AB86A60 412C4659 8312749B BD38B418 E09B9B3F D1A49AF6 AF997287 82C43A5C 8226C067 ...

to byte array ?


Thank you in advance.
