The methods of the SymmetricAlgorithm class are listed here. For a complete list of SymmetricAlgorithm class members, see the SymmetricAlgorithm Members topic.
|Clear||Releases all resources used by the SymmetricAlgorithm.|
|Create||Overloaded. Creates an instance of a cryptographic object used to perform the symmetric algorithm.|
|CreateDecryptor||Overloaded. Creates a symmetric decryptor object.|
|CreateEncryptor||Overloaded. Creates a symmetric encryptor object.|
|Equals (inherited from Object)||Overloaded. Determines whether two Object instances are equal.|
|GenerateIV||When overridden in a derived class, generates a random initialization vector (IV) to be used for the algorithm.|
|GenerateKey||When overridden in a derived class, generates a random Key to be used for the algorithm.|
|GetHashCode (inherited from Object)||Serves as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.|
|GetType (inherited from Object)||Gets the Type of the current instance.|
|ToString (inherited from Object)||Returns a String that represents the current Object.|
|ValidKeySize||Determines whether the specified key size is valid for the current algorithm.|
|Dispose||Releases the unmanaged resources used by the SymmetricAlgorithm and optionally releases the managed resources.|
|Finalize||Overridden. Releases the unmanaged resources used by the SymmetricAlgorithm.
In C# and C++, finalizers are expressed using destructor syntax.
|MemberwiseClone (inherited from Object)||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.|
