The following example uses the GetKeyAlgorithm method to get a certificate's key algorithm in string format and displays it to the console.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography::X509Certificates;
int main()
{

   // The path to the certificate.
   String^ Certificate = "Certificate.cer";

   // Load the certificate into an X509Certificate object.
   X509Certificate^ cert = X509Certificate::CreateFromCertFile( Certificate );

   // Get the value.
   String^ results = cert->GetKeyAlgorithm();

   // Display the value to the console.
   Console::WriteLine( results );
}
