The parameters for RSA.
Exception typeCondition

CryptographicException

The key cannot be exported.

The following code example exports the key information created using the RSACryptoServiceProvider into an RSAParameters object.

try
{
    //Create a new RSACryptoServiceProvider object.
    RSACryptoServiceProvider RSA = new RSACryptoServiceProvider();


    //Export the key information to an RSAParameters object.
    //Pass false to export the public key information or pass
    //true to export public and private key information.
    RSAParameters RSAParams = RSA.ExportParameters(false);


}
catch(CryptographicException e)
{
    //Catch this exception in case the encryption did
    //not succeed.
    Console.WriteLine(e.Message);

}

try {
    // Create a new RSACryptoServiceProvider object.
    RSACryptoServiceProvider rsa = new RSACryptoServiceProvider();

    // Export the key information to an RSAParameters object.
    // Pass false to export the public key information or pass
    // true to export public and private key information.
    RSAParameters rsaParams = rsa.ExportParameters(false);
}
catch (CryptographicException e) {
    // Catch this exception in case the encryption did
    // not succeed.
    Console.WriteLine(e.get_Message());
