Is there anyway to do this using Bouncy Castle?
Is KeyGenerator creation using Bouncy Castle or JCE an overkill?
I mean are those libraries only for encryption / decryption?
Thanks for all the help!

As to whether Bouncycastle is overkill I cannot answer either, as I am not familiar with your requirements. Bouncycastle implements cryptography, of which encryption/decryption and random number generation are important components.
If you need a cryptographic solution such as cryptographically strong random numbers then Bouncycastle is definitely something to consider.
I have a knack for fixing things like this ... um ... sorry ... here is a consilitory tiny ad:
