X509AsymmetricSecurityKey.GetAsymmetricAlgorithm Method

Gets the specified asymmetric cryptographic algorithm.

Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Tokens
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public override AsymmetricAlgorithm GetAsymmetricAlgorithm(
	string algorithm,
	bool privateKey
)

Parameters

algorithm
Type: System.String
The asymmetric algorithm to create.
privateKey
Type: System.Boolean
true when a private key is required to create the algorithm; otherwise, false.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.Cryptography.AsymmetricAlgorithm
An AsymmetricAlgorithm that represents the specified asymmetric cryptographic algorithm.

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

privateKey is true and the X.509 certificate specified in the constructor does not have a private key.

-or-

algorithm is XmlDsigDSAUrl and the public or private key for the X.509 certificate specified in the constructor is not of type DSA.

-or-

algorithm is XmlEncRSA15Url, XmlEncRSAOAEPUrl, XmlDsigRSASHA1Url or RsaSha256Signature and the public or private key for the X.509 certificate specified in the constructor is not of type RSA.

-or-

algorithm is not supported. The supported algorithms are XmlDsigDSAUrl, XmlEncRSA15Url, XmlEncRSAOAEPUrl, XmlDsigRSASHA1Url, and RsaSha256Signature.

Use the XmlDsigDSAUrl, XmlEncRSA15Url, XmlEncRSAOAEPUrl, XmlDsigRSASHA1Url or RsaSha256Signature fields to specify the algorithm parameter.
