RSA Class

Represents the base class from which all implementations of the RSA algorithm inherit.

For a list of all members of this type, see RSA Members.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

Extending this class proves that you are implementing an RSA key. This is required for any developer providing a new RSA key implementation.

The only purpose of this class is as a hierarchy member for identification of the RSA algorithm.
