RC2 Constructor

Initializes a new instance of RC2.

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

protected RC2()

You cannot create an instance of an abstract class. Application code will create a new instance of a derived class.

This algorithm supports key lengths from 40 bits to 1024 bits in increments of 8 bits, but the RC2CryptoServiceProvider implementation only supports key lengths from 40 bits to 128 bits in increments of 8 bits.

This method initializes the protected fields of SymmetricAlgorithm to the default values listed in the following table.
