RC2CryptoServiceProvider Class

Defines a wrapper object to access the cryptographic service provider (CSP) implementation of the RC2 algorithm. This class cannot be inherited.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public ref class RC2CryptoServiceProvider sealed : public RC2
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public final class RC2CryptoServiceProvider extends RC2
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public final class RC2CryptoServiceProvider extends RC2

The RC2CryptoServiceProvider implementation supports key lengths from 40 bits to 128 bits in increments of 8 bits.

The RC2CryptoServiceProvider object is a block cipher that encrypts and decrypts data in blocks of 8 bytes. This class pads the final block of data if it is less than 8 bytes. As a result of this padding, the length of encrypted data could be greater than the original plaintext.

Note that the RC2CryptoServiceProvider object does not use salt.

The following code example encrypts and then decrypts a string.

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