PasswordDeriveBytes.CryptDeriveKey Method

Derives a cryptographic key from the PasswordDeriveBytes object.

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

'Declaration
Public Function CryptDeriveKey ( _
	algname As String, _
	alghashname As String, _
	keySize As Integer, _
	rgbIV As Byte() _
) As Byte()

Parameters

algname
Type: System.String
The algorithm name for which to derive the key.
alghashname
Type: System.String
The hash algorithm name to use to derive the key.
keySize
Type: System.Int32
The size of the key, in bits, to derive.
rgbIV
Type: System.Byte()
The initialization vector (IV) to use to derive the key.

Return Value

Type: System.Byte()
The derived key.

ExceptionCondition
CryptographicException

The keySize parameter is incorrect.

-or-

The cryptographic service provider (CSP) cannot be acquired.

-or-

The algname parameter is not a valid algorithm name.

-or-

The alghashname parameter is not a valid hash algorithm name.

This function is a wrapper for the Crypto API function CryptDeriveKey(), and is intended to offer interoperability with applications using the Crypto API.

If the keySize parameter is set to 0 bits, the default key size for the specified algorithm is used.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the PasswordDeriveBytes class.



' Create the key and set it to the Key property
' of the TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider object.
tdes.Key = pdb.CryptDeriveKey("TripleDES", "SHA1", 192, tdes.IV)
