AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter Class

Represents the base class from which all asymmetric key exchange deformatters derive.

Namespace: System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public abstract class AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public abstract class AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public abstract class AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter

Asymmetric key exchange deformatters decrypt key exchange data.

Key exchange allows a sender to create secret information, such as random data that can be used as a key in a symmetric encryption algorithm, and use encryption to send it to the intended recipient.

Caution noteCaution

It is highly recommended that you not attempt to create your own key exchange method from the basic functionality provided, because many details of the operation must be performed carefully in order for the key exchange to be successful.

The following example demonstrates how to extend the AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter class.

using System;
using System.Security.Cryptography;

namespace Contoso
{
    public class ContosoDeformatter : AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter 
    {
        private RSA rsaKey;

        // Default constructor.
        public ContosoDeformatter(){}

        // Constructor with the public key to use for decryption.
        public ContosoDeformatter(AsymmetricAlgorithm key) 
        {
            SetKey(key);
        }

        // Set the public key for encyption operations.
        public override void SetKey(AsymmetricAlgorithm key) 
        {
            if (key != null) 
            {
                rsaKey = (RSA) key;            }
            else 
            {
                throw new ArgumentNullException("key");
            }
        }

        // Disallow access to the parameters of the formatter.
        public override String Parameters 
        {
            get { return null; }
            set { ; }
        }

        // Create the encrypted key exchange data from the specified input
        // data. This method uses the RSACryptoServiceProvider only. To
        // support additional providers or provide custom decryption logic,
        // add logic to this member.
        public override byte[] DecryptKeyExchange(byte[] rgbData) 
        {
            byte[] decryptedBytes = null;

            if (rsaKey != null)
            {
                if (rsaKey is RSACryptoServiceProvider) 
                {
                    RSACryptoServiceProvider serviceProvder = 
                        (RSACryptoServiceProvider) rsaKey;

                    decryptedBytes = serviceProvder.Decrypt(rgbData, true);
                } 
                // Add custom decryption logic here.
            }
            else 
            {
                throw new CryptographicUnexpectedOperationException(
                    "Cryptography_MissingKey");
            }

            return decryptedBytes;
        }
    }
}
//
// This code example produces the following output:
//
// Data to encrypt : Sample Contoso encryption application.
// Encrypted data: Khasdf-3248&$%23
// Data decrypted : Sample Contoso encryption application.

// This sample completed successfully; press Enter to exit.
