Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server

'Reference the AdventureWorks2012 database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")

'Display all the asymmetric keys on the database.
Dim ak As AsymmetricKey
For Each ak In db.AsymmetricKeys
   Console.WriteLine(ak.Name)
Next

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")
foreach ($ak in $db.AsymmetricKeys)
{
   Write-Host $ak.Name
