Windows.Security.Cryptography.Core classes

The classes in the following table can be used to encrypt and decrypt data by using either symmetric or asymmetric key algorithms. The classes can also be used to create hashed and message authentication codes and to sign content.

In this section

TopicDescription

AsymmetricAlgorithmNames class

Contains static properties that enable you to retrieve algorithm names that can be used in the OpenAlgorithm method of the AsymmetricKeyAlgorithmProvider class.

AsymmetricKeyAlgorithmProvider class

Represents a provider of asymmetric (public) key algorithms.

CryptographicEngine class

Encrypts, decrypts, and signs content, and verifies digital signatures.

CryptographicHash class
