CspParameters Constructor (Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the CspParameters class with the specified provider type code.

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

public CspParameters (
	int dwTypeIn
)
public CspParameters (
	int dwTypeIn
)
public function CspParameters (
	dwTypeIn : int
)

Parameters

dwTypeIn

A provider type code that specifies the kind of provider to create.

Use the CspParameters constructor to specify a provider type by passing a numeric value that represents that provider. The numeric values that represent the default provider types are defined in the WinCrypt.h header file:

  • To specify a provider compatible with the RSA algorithm, pass a value of 1to the dwTypeIn parameter.

  • To specify a provider compatible with the DSA algorithm, pass a value of 13to the dwTypeIn parameter.

For information about other provider type values, see the ProviderType field. For more information about the default provider types and their behaviors, see the Microsoft Cryptography API (CAPI) documentation in the MSDN library.

The following code example creates a key container using the CspParameters class and saves the key in the container.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Security.Cryptography;

public class StoreKey
{
	public static void Main()
	{
		// creates the CspParameters object and sets the key container name used to store the RSA key pair
		CspParameters cp = new CspParameters();
		cp.KeyContainerName = "MyKeyContainerName";

		// instantiates the rsa instance accessing the key container MyKeyContainerName
		RSACryptoServiceProvider rsa = new RSACryptoServiceProvider(cp);
		// add the below line to delete the key entry in MyKeyContainerName
		// rsa.PersistKeyInCsp = false;

		//writes out the current key pair used in the rsa instance
		Console.WriteLine("Key is : \n" + rsa.ToXmlString(true));
	}
}

import System.*;
import System.IO.*;
import System.Security.Cryptography.*;

public class StoreKey
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // creates the CspParameters object and sets the key container name 
        // used to store the RSA key pair
        CspParameters cp = new CspParameters();
        cp.KeyContainerName = "MyKeyContainerName";

        // instantiates the rsa instance accessing the key container 
        // MyKeyContainerName
        RSACryptoServiceProvider rsa = new RSACryptoServiceProvider(cp);

        // add the below line to delete the key entry in MyKeyContainerName
        // rsa.PersistKeyInCsp = false;
        //writes out the current key pair used in the rsa instance
        Console.WriteLine("Key is : \n" + rsa.ToXmlString(true));
    } //main
} //StoreKey
