List Installed Java2 Security Providers

Michel I. Gallant 04/24/2002

[Requires Netscape 6 or IE and JavaPlugin]

This Java2 applet for JavaPlugin enumerates all the Java Security Providers available to the j2re and their associated properties and values. These property values specify the engine.algorithms and the the classes that implement them, as well as other properties. The public method of the applet is accessed by a scripted call to the method from JavaScript. The method returns the data in a formatted table string. A JavaScript function embeds the table of results into a simple html page in another scripted window.
