I was wondering, for better compatibility with previous providers, it
may be considerable to make use of the existing APIs as the
implementation of Certificate.verify(PublicKey key, Provider sigProvider):

     public void verify(PublicKey key, Provider sigProvider)
         throws CertificateException, NoSuchAlgorithmException,
         InvalidKeyException, SignatureException {
-         throw new UnsupportedOperationException();
+         verify(key, sigProvider.getName());

As may simplify both the spec and implementation.
