Element Description

<cryptoClasses>

Contains a list of cryptography classes that have a mapping to a friendly name in the <nameEntry> element.

<cryptoClass>

Contains a cryptography class that has a mapping to a friendly name in the <nameEntry> element.

<cryptographySettings>

Contains cryptography settings.

<cryptoNameMapping>

Contains mappings of classes to friendly names.

<mscorlib>element for cryptography settings

Contains the <cryptographySettings>element.

<nameEntry>

Maps a class name to a friendly algorithm name, which allows one class to have many friendly names.

<oidEntry>

Maps an ASN.1 object identifier (OID) to a friendly name.

<oidMap>

Contains ASN.1 OID mappings to classes.
