+        /**
+         * Gets the name of the protection algorithm.
+         * If none was set then the default algorithm name is returned.
+         * The default algorithm name for a given keystore type is set using the
+         * {@code 'keystore.<type>.entryProtectionAlgorithm'} Security property.
+         * For example, the
+         * {@code keystore.PKCS12.entryProtectionAlgorithm} property stores the
+         * name of the default entry protection algorithm used for PKCS12
+         * keystores.
+         *
I didn't see the security property used in the pkcs12 codes.
