public final class BouncyCastleProvider
extends Provider

To add the provider at runtime use:

 import org.gudy.bouncycastle.jce.provider.BouncyCastleProvider;

 Security.addProvider(new BouncyCastleProvider());
The provider can also be configured as part of your environment via static registration by adding an entry to the properties file (found in $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/, where $JAVA_HOME is the location of your JDK/JRE distribution). You'll find detailed instructions in the file but basically it comes down to adding a line:
Where <n> is the preference you want the provider at (1 being the most prefered).

Note: JCE algorithm names should be uppercase only so the case insensitive test for getInstance works.
