      Description

      Introduce a mechanism to associate metadata with crypto keys.
      The metadata can identify a key's preferred JCE crypto provider in order to improve
      interactions with network-based Hardware Security Modules (HSMs).

      Enhance the java.security.Key interface with methods to store and retrieve a key's
      metadata.
