Please review using the java.util.Hex api in security related classes.
(The review of the API is being done on the core-libs-dev at openjdk.java.net).

Within the JDK and JDK tests there are multiple implementations to 
encode and decode
hexadecimal strings to byte arrays. Hex encoders and decoders support
upper or lower case hexadecimal characters, delimiters, prefix, and suffix.
The API is modeled after the java.util.Base64 API providing static 
factories,
immutable threadsafe instances with methods to encode to and decode from
string and StringBuilder.
