Name

Class java.security.Provider

Synopsis

An instance of the Provider class is responsible for mapping particular implementations to desired algorithm/engine pairs; instances of this class are consulted (indirectly) by the getInstance() methods of the engine classes to find a class that implements the desired operation. Instances of this class must be registered either with the Security class or by listing them in the $JDKHOME/lib/security/java.security file as a security.provider property.
