Represents the base class from which all implementations of the algorithm inherit.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Clear||(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)|
|Create()||Creates an instance of the default implementation of the algorithm.|
|Create(String)||Creates an instance of the specified implementation of .|
|DecryptValue||When overridden in a derived class, decrypts the input data using the private key.|
|Dispose()||(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)|
|Dispose(Boolean)||(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)|
|EncryptValue||When overridden in a derived class, encrypts the input data using the public key.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ExportParameters||When overridden in a derived class, exports the RSAParameters.|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|FromXmlString||Initializes an object from the key information from an XML string. (Overrides AsymmetricAlgorithm.FromXmlString(String).)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ImportParameters||When overridden in a derived class, imports the specified RSAParameters.|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToXmlString||Creates and returns an XML string containing the key of the current object. (Overrides AsymmetricAlgorithm.ToXmlString(Boolean).)|
Extending this class proves that you are implementing an RSA key. This is required for any developer providing a new RSA key implementation.
The only purpose of this class is as a hierarchy member for identification of the RSA algorithm.
In Windows Phone, the RSACryptoServiceProvider supports key lengths from 384 bits to 4800 bits in increments of 8 bits.
