DSASignatureFormatter.SetHashAlgorithm Method

Specifies the hash algorithm for the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) signature formatter.

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

public override void SetHashAlgorithm(
	string strName
)

Parameters

strName
Type: System.String

The name of the hash algorithm to use for the signature formatter.

ExceptionCondition
CryptographicUnexpectedOperationException

The strName parameter does not map to the SHA1 hash algorithm.
