import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
  
        try {
            // creating object of keyfactory
            KeyFactory keyFactory
                = KeyFactory.getInstance("DSA");
  
            // getting the Provider
            // of the KeyFactory keyfactory
            // by using method getProvider()
            Provider provider
                = keyFactory.getProvider();
  
            // printing the provider name
            System.out.println(
                "Provider name: "
                + provider.getName());
        }
  
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
  
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Provider name: SUN

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate

    {
  
        try {
  
            // creating the object of KeyFactory
            KeyFactory sr
                = KeyFactory
                      .getInstance("DiffieHellman");
  
            // getting the Provider of the KeyFactory sr
            // by using method getProvider()
