RSACryptoServiceProvider.RSACryptoServiceProvider(Int32) Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the RSACryptoServiceProvider class with the specified key size.

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

public RSACryptoServiceProvider (
	int dwKeySize
)
public RSACryptoServiceProvider (
	int dwKeySize
)
public function RSACryptoServiceProvider (
	dwKeySize : int
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

dwKeySize

The size of the key to use in bits.

Exception typeCondition

CryptographicException

The cryptographic service provider (CSP) cannot be acquired.

If no default key is found, a new key is created.

This constructor creates an Exchange key pair suitable to encrypt session keys so that they can be safely stored and exchanged with other users. The generated key corresponds to a key generated using the AT_KEYEXCHANGE value used in the unmanaged Microsoft Cryptographic API (CAPI).

The following code example creates a RSACryptoServiceProvider, generates a new key, and stores it in a key container.

using System.Security.Cryptography;
using System.Text;
