<cryptoClasses> Element

Contains a list of cryptography classes that have a mapping to a friendly name in the <nameEntry> element.

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

None.

Child Elements

Element

Description

<cryptoClass>

Contains a cryptography class that has a mapping to a friendly name in the <nameEntry> element.

Parent Elements

Element

Description

configuration

The root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and .NET Framework applications.

cryptographySettings

Contains cryptography settings.

cryptoNameMapping

Contains mappings of classes to friendly names.

mscorlib

Contains the cryptographySettings element.

The following example shows how use the <cryptoClass> element to reference a cryptography class and to configure the runtime. You can then pass the string "RSA" to the CryptoConfig.CreateFromName method and use the Create method to return a MyCryptoRSAClass object.

<configuration>
   <mscorlib>
      <cryptographySettings>
         <cryptoNameMapping>
            <cryptoClasses>
               <cryptoClass   MyCryptoRSA="MyCryptoRSAClass, MyAssembly
                  Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a5d015c7d5a0b012,
                  Version=1.0.0.0"/>
               <!-- Other cryptography classes go here. -->
            </cryptoClasses>
            <nameEntry name="RSA" class="MyCryptoRSA"/>
            <nameEntry name="System.Security.Cryptography.AsymmetricAlgorithm"
                       class="MyCryptoRSA"/>
             <!-- Mappings to other cryptography classes go here. -->
         </cryptoNameMapping>
      </cryptographySettings>
   </mscorlib>
</configuration>
