AlgorithmParameterGenerator getAlgorithm() method in Java with Examples

The getAlgorithm() method of java.security.AlgorithmParameterGenerator class is used to return the standard name of the algorithm this parameter generator is associated with.

Syntax:

public final String getAlgorithm()

Return Value: This method returns the string name of the algorithm.

Below are the examples to illustrate the getAlgorithm() method:

        }
        catch (ProviderException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
