RC2.Create Method (String)

Creates an instance of a cryptographic object to perform the specified implementation of the RC2 algorithm.

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

public static RC2 Create (
	string AlgName
)
public static RC2 Create (
	String AlgName
)
public static function Create (
	AlgName : String
) : RC2
Not applicable.

Parameters

AlgName

The name of the specific implementation of RC2 to use.

Return Value

An instance of a cryptographic object.

Exception typeCondition

TargetInvocationException

The algorithm described by the algName parameter was used with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode enabled, but is not FIPS compatible.

Use this method to create an instance of the RC2 class that you can use to encrypt and decrypt data.

The following example shows how to create and use an RC2 object to encrypt and decrypt data in a file.
