Gets a CspKeyContainerInfo object that describes additional information about a cryptographic key pair.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Property ValueType: System.Security.Cryptography.CspKeyContainerInfo
A CspKeyContainerInfo object that describes additional information about a cryptographic key pair.
Use the property to retrieve additional information about a cryptographic key pair. The returned CspKeyContainerInfo object describes whether the key is exportable, and specifies the key container name, information about the provider, and other information.
In cases where a random key is generated, a key container will not be created until you call a method that uses the key. Some properties of the CspKeyContainerInfo object returned by the property will throw a CryptographicException if a key container has not been created. To make sure that a key container has been created, call a method such as SignData, SignHash, VerifyData, VerifyHash, and so on, before you call the property.
