SHA1CryptoServiceProvider Class

Computes the SHA1 hash value for the input data using the implementation provided by the cryptographic service provider (CSP). This class cannot be inherited.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public sealed class SHA1CryptoServiceProvider : SHA1

The hash size for the SHA1CryptoServiceProvider class is 160 bits.

The following code example computes the SHA1 hash value for data and stores it in result. This example assumes that there is a predefined constant DATA_SIZE.

byte[] data = new byte[DATA_SIZE];

byte[] result; 

SHA1 sha = new SHA1CryptoServiceProvider(); 
// This is one implementation of the abstract class SHA1.

result = sha.ComputeHash(data);
