SymmetricSecurityKey Members

Represents the abstract base class for all keys that are generated using symmetric algorithms.

The SymmetricSecurityKey type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Protected method SymmetricSecurityKey Initializes a new instance of the SymmetricSecurityKey class.

  NameDescription
Public method DecryptKey When overridden in a derived class, decrypts the specified encrypted key. (Inherited from SecurityKey.)
Public method EncryptKey When overridden in a derived class, encrypts the specified key. (Inherited from SecurityKey.)
Public method Equals Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GenerateDerivedKey When overridden in a derived class, generates a derived key using the specified cryptographic algorithm and parameters for the current key.
Public method GetDecryptionTransform When overridden in a derived class, gets a transform that decrypts cipher text using the specified cryptographic algorithm.
Public method GetEncryptionTransform When overridden in a derived class, gets a transform that encrypts XML using the specified cryptographic algorithm.
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetIVSize When overridden in a derived class, gets the size, in bits, of the initialization vector (IV) that is required for the specified cryptographic algorithm.
Public method GetKeyedHashAlgorithm When overridden in a derived class, gets an instance of the specified keyed hash algorithm.
Public method GetSymmetricAlgorithm When overridden in a derived class, gets an instance of the specified symmetric algorithm.
Public method GetSymmetricKey When overridden in a derived class, gets the bytes that represent the symmetric key.
Public method GetType Gets the type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsAsymmetricAlgorithm When overridden in a derived class, gets a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm uses asymmetric keys. (Inherited from SecurityKey.)
Public method IsSupportedAlgorithm When overridden in a derived class, gets a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm is supported by this class. (Inherited from SecurityKey.)
Public method IsSymmetricAlgorithm When overridden in a derived class, gets a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm uses symmetric keys. (Inherited from SecurityKey.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
