Represents the abstract class from which all mask generator algorithms must derive.
For a list of all members of this type, see MaskGenerationMethod Members.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
Derived classes of MaskGenerationMethod compute masks that are used in key exchange algorithms such as Optimal Asymmetric Encryption Padding (OAEP).
This class is used by implementations of key exchange algorithms only for mask generation. Application code does not use this class directly.
