AsnEncodedData Class

Represents Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)-encoded data.

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

type AsnEncodedData =  class end

The AsnEncodedData type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Protected methodAsnEncodedData()Initializes a new instance of the AsnEncodedData class.
Public methodAsnEncodedData(AsnEncodedData)Initializes a new instance of the AsnEncodedData class using an instance of the AsnEncodedData class.
Public methodAsnEncodedData(Byte[])Initializes a new instance of the AsnEncodedData class using a byte array.
Public methodAsnEncodedData(Oid, Byte[])Initializes a new instance of the AsnEncodedData class using an Oid object and a byte array.
Public methodAsnEncodedData(String, Byte[])Initializes a new instance of the AsnEncodedData class using a byte array.

  NameDescription
Public propertyOidGets or sets the Oid value for an AsnEncodedData object.
Public propertyRawDataGets or sets the Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)-encoded data represented in a byte array.

  NameDescription
Public methodCopyFromCopies information from an AsnEncodedData object.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFormatReturns a formatted version of the Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)-encoded data as a string.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1), which is defined in CCITT Recommendation X.208, is a way to specify abstract objects that will be serially transmitted. The set of ASN.1 rules for representing such objects as strings of ones and zeros is called the Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER), and is defined in CCITT Recommendation X.509, Section 8.7. These encoding methods are currently used by the cryptography namespace in the .NET Framework.

Note that if an unknown data type is encountered while accessing an instance of this class, data is returned as a hexadecimal string.

The following code example shows how to use the AsnEncodedData class.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
