KeyFactory getAlgorithm() method in Java with Examples

The getAlgorithm() method of java.security.KeyFactory class is used to gets the name of the algorithm associated with this KeyFactory.

Syntax:

public final String getAlgorithm()

Return Value: This method returns the name of the algorithm associated with this KeyFactory.

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