Creating a PrivateKey from a byte array

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a 256 byte array in my code which I have to use a key in a
MD5withRSA hash.
As far as I can tell, in order to use the MD5withRSA algorithm I need
to use the Singature object.
In order to initiate the Signature object, I need a PrivateKey object.

How do I instantiate a PrivateKey object using my byte array?

I have only managed to create a SecretKey object with my byte array,
but the Signature requires a PrivateKey. I can not cast a SecretKey to
a PrivateKey...

What is the easiest way to create and initialze a new PrivateKey?

Thanks,

Adrian
