The keys() method of java.security.Provider class is used to return an enumeration of the keys in this hashtable.

Syntax: 

public Enumeration keys()

Return Value: This method returns the an enumeration of the keys in this hashtable.

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

Program 1: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// keys() method
 
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // Declaring int variable
        int i = 10;
 
        try {
            // creating the object of SecureRandom
            SecureRandom sr = SecureRandom.getInstance("NativePRNGBlocking");
 
            // getting the Provider of the SecureRandom sr
            // by using method getProvider()
            Provider provider = sr.getProvider();
 
            // Declaring the variable of Enumeration<Object> type
            Enumeration<Object> enume;
 
            // getting the enumeration of the keys
            enume = provider.keys();
 
            // printing the enumerated keys
            System.out.println("enumeration of the values: \n");
            while (i > 0) {
                System.out.println("Value is: " + enume.nextElement());
                i--;
            }
        }
 
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

enumeration of the values: 

Value is: Alg.Alias.Signature.SHA1/DSA
Value is: Alg.Alias.Signature.1.2.840.10040.4.3
Value is: Alg.Alias.Signature.DSS
Value is: SecureRandom.SHA1PRNG ImplementedIn
Value is: KeyStore.JKS
Value is: Alg.Alias.MessageDigest.SHA-1
Value is: MessageDigest.SHA
Value is: KeyStore.CaseExactJKS
Value is: CertStore.com.sun.security.IndexedCollection ImplementedIn
Value is: Signature.SHA256withDSA

 

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// keys() method
 
import java.security.*;
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // Declaring int variable
        int i = 10;
 
        try {
            // creating the object of Signature
            Signature sr = Signature.getInstance("SHA1withDSA");
 
            // getting the Provider of the Signature sr
            // by using method getProvider()
            Provider provider = sr.getProvider();
 
            // Declaring the variable of Enumeration<Object> type
            Enumeration<Object> enume;
 
            // getting the enumeration of the keys
            enume = provider.keys();
 
            // printing the enumerated keys
            System.out.println("enumeration of the values: \n");
            while (i > 0) {
                System.out.println("Value is: " + enume.nextElement());
                i--;
            }
        }
 
        catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

enumeration of the values: 

Value is: Alg.Alias.Signature.SHA1/DSA
Value is: Alg.Alias.Signature.1.2.840.10040.4.3
Value is: Alg.Alias.Signature.DSS
Value is: SecureRandom.SHA1PRNG ImplementedIn
Value is: KeyStore.JKS
Value is: Alg.Alias.MessageDigest.SHA-1
Value is: MessageDigest.SHA
Value is: KeyStore.CaseExactJKS
Value is: CertStore.com.sun.security.IndexedCollection ImplementedIn
Value is: Signature.SHA256withDSA
