The getAlgorithm() method of java.security.AlgorithmParameters 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:

Example 1: For Algorithm DSA  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// getAlgorithm() method
 
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating the object of
            // AlgorithmParameters
            // and getting instance
            // using getInstance() method
            AlgorithmParameters sr
                = AlgorithmParameters
                      .getInstance("DSA");
 
            // generating the Parameters
            // using getAlgorithm() method
            String algo = sr.getAlgorithm();
 
            // printing the string algo
            System.out.println("Algorithm: "
                               + algo);
        }
 
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
        catch (ProviderException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Algorithm: DSA

 

Example 2: For Algorithm DiffieHellman 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// getAlgorithm() method
 
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating the object of
            // AlgorithmParameters
            // and getting instance
            // using getInstance() method
            AlgorithmParameters sr
                = AlgorithmParameters
                      .getInstance("DiffieHellman");
 
            // generating the Parameters
            // using getAlgorithm() method
            String algo = sr.getAlgorithm();
 
            // printing the string algo
            System.out.println("Algorithm: "
                               + algo);
        }
 
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
        catch (ProviderException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Algorithm: DiffieHellman
