The following code example demonstrates how to use members of the CryptoConfig class.

using System;
using System.Security.Cryptography;

        string classDescription = cryptoConfig.ToString();

        // Create a new SHA1 provider.
        SHA1CryptoServiceProvider SHA1alg = 
            (SHA1CryptoServiceProvider)CryptoConfig.CreateFromName("SHA1");
