DSAKeyValue Class

Represents a subelement of KeyInfo that contains a DSA public key.

For a list of all members of this type, see DSAKeyValue Members.

System.Object
   System.Security.Cryptography.Xml.KeyInfoClause
      System.Security.Cryptography.Xml.DSAKeyValue

[Visual Basic]
Public Class DSAKeyValue
   Inherits KeyInfoClause
[C#]
public class DSAKeyValue : KeyInfoClause
[C++]
public __gc class DSAKeyValue : public KeyInfoClause
[JScript]
public class DSAKeyValue extends KeyInfoClause

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

DSAKeyValue is typically used to identify the public key corresponding to the DSA private key that was used to create the digital signature.

If a key is not explicitly supplied to the constructor, a new DSA key pair is randomly generated.

Example
